Abstract: This study investigated the leaner-centered approach's degree of application in present schools conditions comparing with the desired effective application. To accomplish the objectives of the study thirteen first cycle primary schools from Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Region ISNNPRI , Gedeo Zone were selected as a sample. A questionnaire, mostly, consisted of close-ended items with 'disagree', 'yes' or 'no', 'high', 'average' and 'low', and some multiple choice statements. It was distributed to 145 head teachers and teachers of thirteen sample schools. Total collections of completed and usable questionnaires were 145 in number (100%). Responses were tallied in order to convert frequencies into percentages to answer the basic questions raised in the Chapter One of this paper. The major findings were (i) on administrational areas present practices were found to be satisfactory whereas instructional practices were unsatisfactory. (ii) urban and rural schools are equally facing critical problems of large classes, (iii) the objective reality of large classes inhibit teachers from applying learner centered approach in multi grades teaching system (teaching in different grades and sections). Thus present teaching-learning process under such situations found to be unsatisfactory, and (iv) respondents were found to be positive towards self-contained classroom teaching as a remedial suggestion provided for effective application of leaner-centered approach in self-contained large classes.
