This paper examined the issues and challenges of assuring the quality of secondary schools in Nigeria and the strategies on the way forward. In doing that, such concepts like quality, quality assurance, management, secondary education and state of secondary school in Nigeria were reviewed. Irrespective of the fact that some aspects of education may be considered as improving, reviews have shown that students' ability for practical curricular activities are deteriorating showing that quality of our educational system is poor and not assured. The challenges of assuring quality among others were observed to be increasing school enrolment, ineffective teaching and learning process, the poor motivation of teachers, lack of educational resources, lack of quality control and poor funding to schools. To overcome these challenges the paper observed the following strategies as the way forward adequate funding, adequate equipment and facilities, provision of incentives to staff, provision of qualified manpower, effective supervisory system, improving on teachers' level of training etc. When these are done it is believed that the quality of the educational system would be achieved and assured. Therefore efforts must be made to assure quality in the secondary school system in its totality consisting of quality teaching for quality products.
