Abstract

The study aims to assess the impacts of capitation grants in improving teaching and learning environment in community secondary schools: A Case of Mwandiga Division in Kigoma District, Tanzania. The study used both qualitative and thematic (quantitative) research approaches in data analysis. The sample size of the study was forty (40) subjects, comprising; District Education Officer of Kigoma district, heads of community secondary schools in Mwandiga Division, chairpersons of school boards in Mwandiga division. Sampling techniques; respondents were selected purposively, random and using snowball sampling method. The primary and secondary sources of data were obtained through the use; Questionnaire, interviews, observation (primary) and documentation (secondary data). The research findings of the study revealed that capitation grants have not been effective to improve teaching and learning environment in Mwandiga division. Therefore, the study recommends the need for a new system of administration of capitation grants for community secondary schools as well as emphases on transparency, consistency, and uniformity in practice. Regarding policy, the policy framework should be redesigned to improve teaching and learning environment in Tanzania. Again there should be the provision of incentives to those schools with a good record of progression and effort should go towards the shortening of the capitation grant delivery chain for Tanzania to achieve set objectives.
