This paper investigated the distribution of teachers to secondary schools in Ekiti State, Nigeria. As an ex-post facto and descriptive survey, the study population embraced all the 141 secondary schools in Ekiti State, Nigeria. The sample was identical with the population as all the schools were involved in the study. The instrument used to collect data for the study was an inventory while the data collected were analyzed using percentages. The findings showed that the enrolment growth rate was 5.6% while the teacher–student ratio was 1:30. The supply of qualified teachers did not match the demand for them in secondary schools in the State. It was projected that the State government would require additional 3,585 teachers by the year 2016. Based on the findings, it was recommended that government should recruit more qualified teachers into the schools to meet up with the demand for them. This recruitment should however be along subject lines.
