Abstract

The purpose of the study was to investigate the decentralisation system in secondary education in Tanzania and enhancement of secondary teachers’ welfare in Korogwe Town Council. The major objective of the study was to investigate how the decentralisation system has addressed the problems of secondary schools teachers’ welfares in Korogwe Town Council. The study used both primary and secondary data to determine how decentralisation enhances secondary school teachers’ welfare. The primary data was collected through questionnaires and interviews through secondary school teachers, secondary education officer and secretaries of TSD and TTU of Korogwe district, while secondary data was gathered through documentary survey of relevant sources. The findings of the this study have indicated that even though decentralisation in Tanzania has improved some issues like cost, time and service to be near to the population, on the other hand decentralisation has created challenges like poor accountability of council officers, poor seriousness of the officers, the use of hash language, dictatorship leadership and poor provision of funds, have been noted to hinder the improvement of teachers welfare in their centre. The recommendations of this study are, there should be an adequate power under local government in order to implement their plan, there is need to strength laws concerning to the local government duties, and local government should have adequate financial powers and other sources of finance which will help to reduce overdependence of fund from the central government.
