Abstract

The aim of the study was to find out the effects of community participation on access to quality secondary education and post-ordinary level education in Tanzania with specific reference to community secondary schools in Bukoba Municipal Council. The study employed both qualitative and quantitative approaches. The survey design, particularly the cross-sectional design was used. The instruments that were used to collect data included questionnaires, interview and documentary review. The samples included the heads of community secondary schools, Ward Councillors, Ward Executive Officers, Village Executive Officers, Secondary School Teachers, Students and other Community Members. Purposive, simple random and accidental sampling techniques were used. It was revealed from the findings that in some areas community members participated actively in improving education sector in their respective wards through constructing the school infrastructures. However, in other wards the situation was not so promising because community members’ participation was very minimal. This led to insufficient school infrastructures, poor quality education and a few number of students joining post-ordinary level education. The researcher recommended, among other things, the enactment or introduction of by-laws and regulations at the municipality up to village levels to force all community members to give due support to the construction of school infrastructures so as to increase the rate of students’ enrolment and improving the quality of education in general.
