ABSTRACT

This study investigated the effectiveness of the inspectorate department in improving the quality of secondary education in Zanzibar. The study essentially explored how stakeholders perceived the roles of the educational inspectorate. Furthermore, the study examined how school inspectors facilitated quality instruction, enhanced learning outcomes, and promoted the professional development of teachers. The study was guided by Taylors (1911) theory of Scientific Management. Besides, this study employed the CIPP framework which assumed that Context, Inputs, Processes, and Products should be used all together and no part should be left behind in order for inspectors to be effective. The study mainly employed a qualitative research approach and included 6 school inspectors, 7 heads of school, and 63 secondary school teachers. Data were collected through questionnaires and interview schedules.

Main findings revealed that there were different perceptions among education stakeholders on the roles and effectiveness of the inspectorate department in improving education quality in secondary schools at Magharibi District. However, the majority of stakeholders perceived school inspection facilitating effective in terms of teachers'‟ quality instruction, enhancing learning outcomes and promoting their professional development.
