Abstract: This study determined the factors affecting quality of primary school inspection on serving inspectorate purposes, to achieve educational goals in Biharamulo District Council. The district level of school inspectors was established to inspect and supervise the implementation of primary school curriculum in the local government authorities. The school inspectors are working as external supervisors responsible to the Zonal Inspectorate level. The study sought to establish and recommend on the factors affecting quality of primary school inspection by examining the role of school inspectors, their knowledge and skills, incentives given to school inspectors and the effects of inspectorate structure. This was in view of the fact that there are a lot of global changes in education system, while deployment of school inspectors and working procedures remain the same. The study was conducted through case study; data was collected in January 2009 using questionnaires, interviews and documentary review from forty five schools, district education officers, district school inspectors, and ward education coordinators. Phenological approach was used for qualitative data analysis. The study established that District school inspectors lack modern training, enough incentives and are working under closed inspectorate structure. The inspectors want decentralization inspectorate structure and plan for permanent inspector’s course to equip them with modem inspection techniques. The school inspectors should supervise, train, and work together with other district education officers. Also district inspectors should receive their funds directly from the central treasury to avoid mis-allocation of funds, Lastly the inspectorate structure should be reviewed to establish the regional office, and involve WEC practically at the lower level of supervision and inspection.
