dc.description.abstract This study was conducted in order to investigate teachers’ perceptions of the implementation of the Big Results Now (BRN) initiative in Tanzanian education sector. The specific objectives of the study were to examine teachers’ perceptions of the implementation of the BRN initiative in Tanzanian education sector and recommend ways of improving the implementation of the initiative. The study involved 120 teachers from six government secondary schools in Njombe Region, one of the regions of Tanzania. The data were collected using a set of questionnaire and focus group discussions. The quantitative data were analyzed using computer software, Statistical Package for Social Sciences, version 18, in which frequencies and percentages of responses on teachers’ perceptions of the implementation of the BRN initiative in Tanzanian education sector were computed. In addition, the qualitative data were analysed using content analysis. The findings indicated that there was lack of understanding of the objectives of the BRN initiative in Tanzanian education sector among the majority of teachers. Moreover, the teachers were not involved in the plans to implement the BRN initiative and conditions in schools were not supportive for the successful implementation of the initiative. On the ways of improving the implementation of the BRN initiative in Tanzanian education sector, teachers recommended, among others, that they should be educated on the objectives of implementing the initiative as they are the cornerstone in making the initiative a success. en_US
