Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of school committees in governing Primary school capitation grant in Urambo District. The study was conducted in five primary schools (Urambo, Kapilula, Mabatini, Songambele and Sipungu) in Urambo district using a descriptive design. A sample of 43 respondents was chosen though only 39 respondents turned up. Questionnaires, documentary review and interview guide were used to collect data. The results indicate that rules on capitation disbursement and spending are not clear to some of school committee members and the mechanisms that were supposed to be used by school committees to monitor primary school capitation grant were not effectively used due to lack of training. There were also inadequate measures taken by Local Government to improve school committee effectiveness. So, the study conclude that school committees as decision making organs in capitation governance are still incapable in managing capitation grant in primary schools. This study recommends that there is a need for school committee training and more researches on the topic.
