dc.description.abstract The study intended to examine the Assessment of teacher's Management on students with single parent care towards academic performance in Secondary schools in Tanzania: A case of Dodoma Municipality. Specifically, the study embraces to examine care and management provided by teachers and parents to students with single parent in Dodoma municipality. Identify problems facing students with single parent care towards academic performance in Dodoma municipality and recommend policy options and strategies for increasing performance to students with a single parent.The study employed a case study research design with structured questionnaires, interviews and group discussion to collect primary data from one hundred and one (101) participants and secondary data obtained from various literature surveyed. A Thematic analysis Framework was used to describe pattern across qualitative data. The study revealed that teacher‟s managed students with single parent to the minimal level despite the challenges they are. They treat the same as the students with both parents, they not gave special attention rather than guiding and counsel as provided to all students. Most of the challenges these single parented students encountered too were; financial problem, psychological problem, lack of parental care and guidance. Due to these challenges facing these students led to school dropout as well as poor academic performance in school at general. The study recommended that due to challenges facing students with single parent, the government should provide specialist counselors to all secondary schools who will offer special attention to these single parented students, building hostels to host these students, provide teaching and learning materials to students and commencing food program to all secondary schools in order to encourage them to work hard so as to achieve better performance. en_US
