Overall, the implementation of these programs was perceived by teachers as satisfactory. There were significant variations in terms of gender, educational background, teaching duty, school size and school type. 4. Most of the interviewees reported that among the others, the most difficult obstacle affecting implementation of professional development activities was the short of time. Teachers found it difficult to spare time for professional development out of their busy teaching schedule. That is also one of the challenges faced by school administration.
