This study endeavours to investigate the status of Geography teaching in Algerian Secondary Schools. Emphasis is placed on the low performance in the subject and the effect this has on both teachers and pupils. To establish the factual position samples of 200 third year pupils and 100 teachers completed a questionnaire. In addition, 500 pupils, in different schools completed an experiment related to the Baccalaureat examination. Five schools, in different areas of Algiers were sampled with respect to the availability and use of teaching materials. An examination was made in the Ministry of Education of teachers qualifications and a seminar was held in Algiers with a group of geography teachers to evaluate the overall results of the research. The thesis consists of chapters devoted to the background to the problems, a description of the methodology used, a review of the effects of educational policy, the human resources available and the physical materials available in schools. The conclusion includes recommendations for future improvements.
