The public sector dominates the education landscape in Tanzania. Nine out of ten households (90%) report that their children exclusively attend public schools.

The share of households with a child in private school remained constant at 10% between August 2016 and September 2017. While nine out of ten households currently do not have any children in private school, over half (52%) indicated that they would send their child to private school rather than public school if both types of school were free.

A higher proportion of parents send their children to private nursery schools (27%) and secondary schools (17%) than primary schools (7%).

Quality of education is the issue. A parent would be a fool to choose lower quality education if he/she could afford a better school.

..... and only the fool parents do take their kids to public schools while they can afford even to send them abroad.

And most of these parents obtained their wealth through witchcraft
