Sustainable Development Goal 4 is about inclusive and equitable quality education and providing learning opportunities for all. To this end, the government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Pakistan initiated a unique education monitoring authority in the public sector schools to improve the quality of education.  The study utilizes a mixed-method sequential design that involves both qualitative and quantitative datasets. The population of the study is all the public sector schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan. For a large-scale quantitative dataset, one hundred and twenty (120) participants were selected randomly and for a small-scale qualitative dataset, fifteen (15) respondents were selected through purposive sampling techniques. The quantitative data were analyzed by using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and the small-scale qualitative data was analyzed by qualitative data software NVivo. The study reveals that an inspection of the monitoring staff has decreased the levels of absenteeism for both teaching and non-teaching staff. The findings also identified non-availability of the basic facilities at the school level.
