The purpose of this study was to evaluate decentralization of secondary school
education and effectiveness of inspection in Tanzania. The study specifically
examined the changes that have occurred in the inspection after the decentralization
of secondary schools, challenges facing school inspection, and explored possible
initiatives that the Government can undertake to conduct proper and effective
secondary school inspection, drawing references from Dodoma Municipality. The
study employed a cross-sectional survey research design and both qualitative and
quantitative approaches were employed to obtain and analyze data for the study.
Primary data were collected using interviews, structured and semi structured
questionnaires were distributed by purposive, and simple random sampling were
used to obtain data. Secondary data were collected from books, journals, articles and
dissertations. A total of 65 respondents were involved in the study . Qualitative data
were analyzed through description, explanations and quantitative data were analyzed
using the SPSS software. The results indicated that, after secondary school
decentralization, little improvement was attained in education delivery. Further, the
school inspection programme was found to face different challenges, such as schools
were not inspected every year as per the Ministry directives, no training was
conducted to the inspectors, shortage of funds, lack of transport facilities shortage of
manpower and the like. Therefore, no significant improvement was identified to have
taken place in inspection after decentralization of secondary schools. Finally
different initiatives were proposed by respondents, if the proposal will be well
implemented, there will be academic excellence in secondary schools.
