John Fungulupembe Kalolo

Abstract


Ensuring that Tanzanian secondary school students receive quality science education (SE) experiences is a desire that Tanzania has looked forward to achieving.Despite clear and well-focused intent to provide quality SE experiences in schools, the progress towards achieving a target has not been so clear over decades. This review paper analyses the SE debates and the efforts made towards achieving such a goal. The analysis in this paper is built on an attempt to trace the progress and the success of the aspiration to providequality SE in Tanzanian secondary schools. The paper also articulates how such an expectation has been achieved so far. Eventually the paper identifies some new emphases in an effort to provide quality SE and providesa relevant approach towards achieving the goal to provide excellent SE experiences in schools.
