The study was predominantly qualitative supplemented by quantitative approach with descriptive survey design. Bertallanfy General System Theory (GST) guided this study using participants selected from 40 primary schools in Dodoma Municipality. Data were collected through focus group discussions, observation checklist, interviews guidelines and documentary review. Qualitative data were analysed using thematic analysis while quantitative data were analysed by descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation and inferential statistics). Findings of this study show that learning environment in Tanzania primary schools was categorically characterized by various factors, like the appropriate location of schools; healthy administrative atmosphere; quality instruction and need based teaching-learning resources.
