Abstract:

Through the Government White Paper on Education of 1992, the Government of Uganda adopted reforms geared towards Universalization & democratization of Education. In 1996 the government started implementation of Universal Primary Education (UPE) Policy by eliminating fees. By removing what had been an important financial impediment, enrolment of pupils increased from 2.3 million children in 1997, 7.3 million by 2003.

Unfortunately not all the children who completed the primary cycle were able to join secondary schools. According to the Education Management Information System 2005 only 46% of those who completed primary seven were able to transit to secondary education.

Subsequently in 2007, Government started implementation of the Universal Secondary Education Policy by this time the gross enrollment ratio was 19% & net enrollment ratio 13%.

It was envisaged that increased access & attendance in secondary schools would enhance the sustainability of UPE. Secondary education is important for training the teachers, administrators contributes significantly to economic social, cultural development.
