dc.description.abstract The study was on determining the availability, utility and relevancy of the certificate of secondary education textual materials from randomly selected 12 secondary schools in Morogoro region. It was observed that the most utilized textual materials were those which could often be sited by examiners. Approved textbooks were outdated hence they were least utilized compared to the reference books which were more current according to the syllabus in use. Though the most utilized textbooks covered most of the concepts as specified in the syllabus, they were some unclear concepts regarding the issues of environmental degradation, weather and climate, power use and climate change. Rural students are more likely to be affected by the observed weaknesses in the schools textual materials than urban ones because of the restricted opportunities for information sources in rural areas.
