Teacher motivation is a point of concern for educationists, education planners and school managers. There are several theories dealing with teacher motivation from different viewpoints. The present paper is a short survey concerning the kind of opinion that motivated teachers have regarding the effectiveness of curriculum. The survey was conducted in a private CBSE-based school of Patna. The survey showed a medium positive correlation of 0.35 between teacher motivation and teachers’ perception of effectiveness of curriculum. This implies that while it is true that motivated teachers in general have a positive opinion about their curriculum being effective, it is not so always. A small number are not very confident. This might be because they might be looking towards further possible improvements.
