Teacher irregularity is a noteworthy issue confronting numerous educational institutes. A high rate of irregularity of teachers from their posts is a serious obstruction to conveyance of education in many developing countries, but hard proof on the issue has been rare. There are more than a few critical variables that are associated with increased irregularity of teachers: poor working conditions, for example, poorer groups and infrastructure; teachers with less binds to the school's communities; contract teaching, absence of unpredictable supervision and appraisal, allotting instructor's non-teaching obligations, instructors strike and absence of congruity amongst guardians and educators are key reasons for teachers irregularity. By contrast, delegations for more lively top-down and base up observing are not connected with lower absence. These outcomes, together with the moderately high general state funded teacher participation rates in a situation where monetary impetuses for execution are frail, propose that non-financial motivators are imperative determinants of teacher performance. Head instructors and Education Officers has involved teachers for coming to class late, leaving right on time from school, teachers being in school and not taking care of their lessons and teachers doing private business amid working hours. The primary goal of this study is to figure out what the key elements of teacher’s irregularity are and how these factors influence students’ performance in their academic career. The study prescribes that with a specific end goal to decrease teacher irregularity there is need to address personal, school and environmental factors prompting teacher irregularity successfully.■
