Abstract

The study evaluated the impact of school quality assurance on the delivery of high-quality instruction in public secondary schools in Tanzania’s Kwimba District. The theory of total quality management served as the study’s guide (TQM). The study used a convergent parallel research design as part of a mixed research approach. A sample of 93 was drawn from a population of 720. The validity of the research instruments was ensured by submitting them to the supervisor for validation. The qualitative data was gathered through interviews, analyzed using thematic analysis, and presented using themes in quotation and narration form. The quantitative data collected via questionnaire was analyzed descriptively using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 21 and presented in frequency, percentages, tables, charts, and graphs.  According to the study, school quality assurance officers fail to influence the provision of quality education due to poor communication skills, a lack of sufficient human resources, poor implementation of constructive feedback provided in schools, and a lack of sufficient funds to run various activities related to the provision of quality education.  The study concluded that school quality assurance in the Kwimba district has little influence on the provision of quality education due to the various challenges they face. As a result, it is recommended that the local government provide sufficient funds for the office of quality assurance to ensure effective provision of quality education.
