Abstract

This study investigated the extent of parents’ involvement in their children’s education in various secondary schools from Dar es Salaam, Morogoro and Kagera Regions in Tanzania. A sample of 168 respondents was purposively randomly selected including parents, secondary school teachers, and students. A case study design was used to collect data from the respondents using questionnaires and interviews. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were used to tape respondents’ subjective views and simple percentages were calculated from the frequency responses for descriptive purposes. The SPSS version 22.0 was used for data analysis of simple descriptive statistics and content analysis for qualitative data. The study indicated that there was little parental engagement in their children’s education. The study recommends the establishment of different platforms which would encourage parental engagement in school programs to support the academic activities of their children in secondary schools in Tanzania.
