A significant factor for development and basic human right for children, communities and countries is education. Good education is a key factor in improving the economic factors of a country. The Government of Tanzania made different progress to make sure universal enrolment in primary school is achieved. In 2016 the government started to implement the circular issued in 2015 about free education from primary to secondary school level. The study focused on the Factors affecting the provision of quality education in public primary school in Msalala Council, Shinyanga region. The study involved both qualitative and quantitative methods. Information was gathered from students, teachers, the District Education Officer and head teachers from government primary school in Msalala Council. It involved a total 120 respondents. Analysis was done by using Excel and statistical package for social science statistics to get descriptive results as well as a certain association between free education and quality of educations. According to the findings, public primary schools in Msalala Council face different challenges like overcrowding in classes, high enrolment especially in standard one due to an introduction of free education, lack of enough teachers to teach student, lack of good physical resources and lack of enough learning and teaching materials. In conclusion, implementing free education in public primary schools with limited resources will never provide quality education. It is recommended that the Government should make sure that investment in education is well organised since quality education need all education materials to be available in place ready for implementation. The government may work closely with other education stakeholders, NGOs and international agencies so that they can fill the gap that government failed to fill.
