The paper was largely undertaken to explore the impact of educational decentralization on education service delivery in chosen Local Governments in Uganda. The results point out to moderate level of Education Service Delivery in Ugandan Local Governments (M =2.74, SD = 1.095) with a statistically significant negative influence of nominal participation on education service delivery (β = -0.514, p < 0.001). Results also showed instrumental participation has got a statistically significant positive influence on Education decentralization (β = 0.299, p<0.001) with administrative decentralization has a negative significant influence on education service delivery (β = -0.264, p = 0.003 < 0.05). Results also showed instrumental participation has got a statistically significant positive influence on Education decentralization (β = 0.299, p<0.001) with administrative decentralization has a negative significant influence on education service delivery (β = -0.264, p = 0.003 < 0.05). The study concluded that education service delivery remains crucial but with appropriate integration of administrative decentralization. Henceforth among others the Ministry of Education and Sports in partnership with local educational authorities ought to develop and institutionalize strategies that periodically strengthen powers of local authorities to allocate financial resources and as well develop regulatory controls in public educational institutions for enhanced education service delivery.
