dc.description.abstract The study dealt with the theories of motivation, causes of demotivation, the role of the school management team in educator motivation. In the study certain influential theories were briefly looked at such as the earlier theories of Maslow, McGregor and Hezberg. The empirical survey was used to gather information from educators on the following research questions: • What causes de-motivation of educators? • What is the role of the school management team in the motivation of educators? • What alternative theories, strategies and approaches can the school management team adopt to motivate educators? In the study it was found out that against the milieu in which most schools operate, there seems to be a great deal of de-motivation among educators. Educators are burdened with overload, limited resources, increased workloads, and financial constraints. The study concluded that in order for educators to perform at their best, they needed to be motivated. The responsibility lies heavily on the school management team to motivate educators. The study recommended that the school management team must provide sound visionary and creative motivational leadership in order for educators to perform. en_US
