The study aimed to explore the factors affecting the effectiveness of remedial work policy in selected secondary schools in the Kasempa District of North-Western Province of Zambia. Despite the existence of localised corrective work policy in schools and the emphasis on the need for sustained remedial work, academic achievement remained low in secondary schools of Kasempa District. This is as evidenced by results in the National Examinations at grades 9 and 12 levels. We used a descriptive case study design to collect and analyse the data. The factors explored were government and school policies on remedial work, teacher preparedness and ability to prepare various teaching/learning activities, and the headteacher characteristics and support to remedial work. On the other hand, external factors explored included parental monitoring of learners' schoolwork, parental guidance and checking on homework, home environment and parental support to learners' education. The study recommends that similar studies be conducted throughout the country.
