Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Pedagogy - School System, Educational and School Politics, grade: 8, University of Dodoma (College of Education), course: Educational Management and Administration, language: English, abstract: Privatization of education service and delivery aimed to enhance access and improve quality of education.

This is fundamental question in order to analyze effectiveness of Privatization of Education Approach in Tanzania. Moreover, several aspects will be discussed including Effectiveness Inspectorate Boards, Examination and Accreditation boards.
