dc.description.abstract The main purpose of this study was to examine the management strategies on teachers‟ turnover in private secondary schools in Tanzania. Specifically, the study explored the forces, consequences and the management strategies of teachers‟ turnover in private secondary schools. The study employed descriptive design, while mixed research approach was used. The data were collected through questionnaires and interviews. About 62 respondents were involved in questionnaires tips whereas 13 responded to interview tips, thus, making a total of 75 respondents. The findings of the study indicated that the forces for teachers‟ turnover were inadequate salary, loss of group cohesion, poor working condition of the school, administrative problems, teachers‟ lack of initial preference to teaching profession and lack of opportunity for further education. Moreover, the study found that teachers‟ turnover leads to various effects in school such as incurred cost in schools, poor performance of the school as well as students, low education quality, students‟ mobility and it is difficult to establish a cohesive school working team. In addition to that, the management strategies that the study identified were: reviewing the teacher‟s salaries, provision of better accommodation, promotion based on qualification and experience, provision of adequate working facilities, good working environment and change of leadership style. The study recommends that all stakeholders especially directors of private secondary schools and heads of schools should consider putting in place policies and strategies that will attract and retain teachers to ensure better retention rates for the good of the whole education system in Tanzania en_US
