Introduction Teachers are very important people to implement successfully the programs and interventions introduced to enhance the implementation of education and training policy. Quality of education demands planned and properly designed capacity building programs for teachers and other officials in education system Derebssa Dufera 2006.

So the quality of education can be no greater than the dignity we assign to teaching. We expect our teachers to work miracles every single day what our homes churches and communities have been unable to accomplish. and when teachers fall short and where along the line we condemn them for not meeting our idealized expectations David d.
