Basic education is the fundamental requirement for idiosyncratic and societal development. The individual child needs to have access to it and acquire it qualitatively. The sum total of all the knowledge attitude, skills and competences that the Nigerian child today acquires have been declared to be on the decline. Every stakeholder: teacher, pupil, community and government/proprietor have its own blame to share. Rather than bulk passing blame, it is necessary to seek for how to enhance access to and quality of basic education. This study explains what access and quality are. The leadership functions of the head teacher in enhancing access to and quality of basic education are also discussed.
