Forty Public Senior Secondary Schools out of 305 representing 36% were randomly selected while 440 teachers out of 1,207 representing 37% were proportionally selected using multi-stage sampling technique. The instruments titled “Quality Control Questionnaire” (QCQ) and “Students Academic Performance Profoma” (SAPP) were adopted to elicit data required. Three research questions and operational hypotheses each were generated and analyzed using percentage and regression statistic at 0.05 significant level. Findings of this study revealed that there was a significant positive relationship between quality control and teacher effectiveness in Nigerian Public Senior Secondary Schools. It was recommended, among others, that supervisions of schools, stimulated professional growth and development of teacher should be intensified for effective quality control of schools.
