Abstract

This study investigated the Teacher/Pupils Ratios on the Internal Efficiency Indicators of Mvomero District and Morogoro Municipal. Five objectives were set; the Teacher Pupils Ratio for remote and peripheral schools compared to urban schools against internal efficiency parameters such as, the dropout rate, the transition rate, the pass rate, and the repetition rates. Methodologically both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used for data collection and analysis. Focused group discussions (FGD), semi–structured interviews, questionnaires and unpublished documentary reviews were used as instruments for data collection. The results of this study show that there are wide TPR between Morogoro urban 1:48 and Mvomero district 1:58; concerning dropout rates there are differences between Morogoro Municipality and Mvomero district schools. In terms of repetition rate the findings indicate that there is difference of 15 per cent between Morogoro urban with an average of 37 per cent in Mvomero district schools with an average of 22 per cent for Morogoro municipality schools. The transition rate shows that there is a lower transition rate in Mvomero district schools of 62 per cent compared to Morogoro Municipality of 82 per cent. The pass rate in Mvomero district schools was 74 per cent compared to Morogoro urban schools of 96 per cent. The remotely located schools in Mvomero are not attractive to teachers because they lack essential services as indicated in the text. It is recommended that the Government provide hardship allowances or the schools advertise the vacancies so that those who apply are those prepared to live and work in the remote and peripheral locations.
