This study examined the issue of quality in rural primary schools in Nigeria. Quality was linked to both individual and national development and thus necessary to consider an approach that supports the practice of quality assurance in a holistic rather than individualistic oriented method. Quality assurance system should be seen as a process of enhancing and promoting collaboration and participation for institutional development. This entails a shift to a more pragmatic approach that encourages the involvement of everybody in the drive towards ensuring quality in Nigerian rural primary schools. Therefore, governments and policy makers need to put in place strategies that will serve to improve the condition of teacher and teaching in order to improve student achievement across rural schools in Nigeria.
