Abstract

This study investigated the stakeholders’ views on the quality of education in community based secondary schools in Moshi Rural District. The study was conducted by using both qualitative and quantitative approaches. The study used interviews, questionnaires and documentary reviews as data collection instruments. A sample of respondents were involved including students, parents, teachers and educational officers, politician and religious leaders. Results show that there are qualitatively different views on quality of education in community secondary schools. Whereas students complains having few teachers especially for science teachers, parents view that fees are low but other contributions are much higher making them unable to participate fully and feel free to visit where their children are enrolled and teachers views that schools do not have enough infrastructure for quality teaching, classes are overcrowded, have a lot of periods to teach, students come for long distant and schools do not have meals. On the other hand religious leaders view schools being more politicized and politicians focus more on building classes for starting schools without focusing on increase of school infrastructures in relation to students increase. In most cases once the school is registered efforts toward maintaining and improving its quality are minimal. On the basis of the findings, there is a need therefore to have joint campaigns in improving quality that encourage participation of all stakeholders and where necessary the loan facility and grants be provided in schools to cater for students from poor families.
