(gender-wise equal). Participants’ responses were collected via questionnaire.

error of mean and estimated population mean were employed. The study
revealed that from the findings of the study A.V Aids were not appropriately
used, teachers’ pay scales were not satisfactory and secondary level
curriculum did not meet the academic needs. Therefore, the researchers

important, besides the teachers training and motivation to utlize these audiovisual
aids for enhancement of instructional process. Moreover, it is suggested
that adequate budgetry allocation for education and improving the pay scales
of the teachers will enhance the quality of education.
