Faustina M. Msigwa

Abstract: COVID-19 pandemic has become the greatest health challenge the world has faced since the Second World War. COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world economy as well as social sector (health and education). This study examines how COVID-19 pandemic has affected the Education system in Tanzania. Particularly, it examines the impact of the pandemic on the aspects of schools governance, mode of delivery, and the curriculum. This study sees that despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, learning should continue. In this study governments and other non-state actors are advised to offer a substantial intervention in the aim of retaining a resilient education system for the post pandemic period. The study suggests strategies such as trying any possible low technology solutions, maintaining motivation to teachers and makes them a focus to the response, focusing on the most vulnerable, and helping parents to manage the home learning environment. Moreover, the study suggests that schools should envision applying learning strategies which seem to be more effective during school closure, invest in technology and track progress.
