dc.description.abstractThis study was conducted to find out the acceptability of Distance Learning (DL) to Basic School Teachers in Ghana and how they are availing themselves to DL programmes in the country. It was also conducted to find out the opportunities available to teachers who opt for DL programmes and how they finance their education. // A questionnaire was administered to 320 Basic School teachers pursuing DL programmes in four study centres of the University of Cape Coast, Ghana. The study revealed that: Basic school teachers have accepted DL programmes as they allow them to study at their convenience, pace and to enjoy the comfort of the home. It also affords them access to lifelong education. // This paper makes recommendation on the need for Ghana Education Service (GES) to financially support teachers who opt for DL. It also recommends some other incentives that GES could give to teachers pursuing DL programmes to attract them to opt for DL programmes, as this will go a long way to solve the problem of shortage of teachers at the Basic level and to drastically reduce the high turn over of teachers. // Paper ID 240en_US
