Education is critical to industrial and technological development with the history of developed nations bearing records of this; developing nations aspiring to realize the same status have to put a premium on education as regard to teacher characteristics UNESCO (1986).

Adeyemo (2005) notes that teacher characteristics influenced teaching and learning in classrooms. Olaleye (2011) establishes that there was relationship between teachers’ characteristics and pupils’ performances in schools.

Gravestock and Gregor-Greenleaf (2008) state that the explanations for good or poor students academic performance has a controversy exist among scholars as to what contribute singly or jointly to students poor performance in schools.

Furthermore, Akinsolu (2010) asserts that availability of qualified teacher determined the performance of students in school. Coonen (1987) emphasizes that teacher involved in in-service training were more effective in classrooms as compared to teachers who had not undergone training.

Wirths and Perkins (2013) observed that students’ attitude was related to teacher characteristics. This therefore means that teacher’s attitude directly affects students attitude. On teacher personality, Adu and Olatundun (2007) contend that teacher’s characteristics were strong determinants of students’ performance in secondary school.

Scholars and researchers generally are in agreement that the school variable which include teacher administration, perform a critical role in educational achievement than other variable (Patrick, 2005). The important role of the teacher learning is unquestionable. Teachers have a lot of influence on their classroom practice. Teachers have a lot of influence on their classroom practice. Teachers should have and apply specific abilities without which the influence may not be reflected in their students’ performance in subject.

For students to be able to make connection between what is taught in school and its application in problem solving in real life, the teacher have to be effective in their teaching techniques. There has been no consensus on the importance of specific teaching method leading to the common connection that the existing empirical evidence does not find a strong role for teacher in the determination of academic achievement of students this in any academic discipline in teaching government. This study there sought to investigate the influence of teacher characteristics in influencing students’ performance in school.

1.2       State of the Problem

This study is projecting on various events in the Nigeria secondary schools that occurred almost yearly. Event that occur such as the rate of students failure and dropout rates are increasing at senior secondary school, stakeholders blame students examination who are not ready to learn  as one of the causes of their failure. Besides this, teacher and students need to be blame because it is caused by them, lack of dedication to their work will affect the academic performance of students. Whoever is to blame in this case? The general view expressed in the case that teacher quality is a resource and a great educational asset (Ayodele, 2004). Adeogun (2001) finds that the quality of the education system depends on the quality of teachers and a school without these resources it is impossible to achieve the goals and objectives of the education system.

Adesina (1980) also reveals that teachers are the primary indicator and determinant of the quality of education. It is against this background that the research seeks to address the question “could this be as the result of poor mastery of the subject matter by teachers’ qualification, and teacher experience in teaching.
