Quality of Education Reforms: The Case of HakiElimu’s Campaign of 2005-2007

By: International Budget Partnership

Between 2004 and 2007 Tanzania made significant strides in increasing school enrollment, particularly in primary school. However, there were questions about the quality of education the country’s schools were providing children. Civil society organization, HakiElimu, uses budget analysis and advocacy to improve education for all of Tanzania’s children.

When developing its Programme Strategy for 2004-2007, HakiElimu noted improvements in enrollment levels, but identified a lack of attention to education quality. Based on these concerns, it crafted and implemented a campaign that led to significant improvements in Tanzania’s schools.

However, enrollment was not the only problem in the education sector. HakiElimu’s concerns about education quality drove it to partner with the Tanzania Teachers’ Union to survey teachers on their living and working conditions.  The resulting report, The Living and Working Conditions of Teachers in Tanzania (2004), highlighted three major issues: low morale due to low pay, poor quality of teachers, and poor working environments.  This resource discusses the report, HakiElimu’s campaigns, their methods and results.
