The study examined the level of performance of primary education inspectors in the Federal Capital Territory with a view to ascertain their actual level of operation and to proffer solution. In particular, the work tried out to determine perception of teachers about inspectors’ performance in urban and sub-urban schools. To determine the above, research questions and hypotheses were formulated to enable the study be statistically tested. T-test was used for the first hypothesis whereas hypothesis two was tested using ANOVA – test, all on the 0.05 level of significance. The results showed that the ratings of the performance of the primary education inspectors is significantly above average of 2.50, and that there is significant difference in the ratings of the functions of primary education inspectors by teachers on the basis of school location. Hence, inspectors perform their duties mostly in urban areas with less attention paid to sub-urban areas. Based on the results of the study, it was recommended, among others, that inspectors should extend their functions to all primary schools in the Federal Capital Territory irrespective of their locations to give teachers equal opportunity to benefit from their services.

Key words:
