It is widely accepted that school infrastructure plays an important part in the teaching-learning process and its eventual efficacy. Since teachers constitute a very important part in the teaching learning process it is very important to study the role of school infrastructure in motivating teachers. In order to design motivation oriented school infrastructure systems it is essential to know how the different aspects of school infrastructure affect teachers motivation. The present study sought to address these factors in order to create a structured model which represents how the different aspects of school infrastructure influence the motivation of school teachers. The study was conducted among a random sample of teachers from North Bengal (N= 111). The results were analyzed using SPSS 17.0. Principal component analysis resulted in extracting three factors: which were subsequently labeled as Ego factors, Convenience factors and Operational factors. The findings were analyzed and interpreted. This study provided a structured framework which represented how the different aspects of school infrastructure fulfilled the different human needs and resulted in teacher motivation.
