Financial effect in Ugandan education: Case study of Moyo, Wakiso and Kabare districts

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since 1997, Uganda has been implementing universal primary education policy. The principal feature of this policy is to eliminate school tuition and community participation fees, and the major outcome of the policy has been the massive increase of students' enrollment. For instance, in 1996, 3.1 million children were enrolled in the primary schools, while the number increased to 5.3 million in 1997. This is an increment of 7.3 percent during a one year period. On the other hand, the sudden expansion of enrollments has put tremendous pressure on the entire primary educational system. Due to the rapid increase of enrollment, the quality of education has deteriorated. Many students do not have adequate learning materials and good physical conditions. In this paper, I will analyze the current situation the primary education in Uganda by focusing on the district level. I particularly use three districts - one from north, one from central and one from south - to investigate how much each district spends on the primary education. This study also reviews the education indicators including enrollment rates, dropout rates, repetition rates, and the condition of physical facilities. The districts used for the study are Moyo (north), Wakiso (central) and Kabare (south). These three districts have different backgrounds. Moyo district suffered from the conflict and now is troubled about the effect and the other reasons which are farm, poor, and girl's particular problem. Kabare district has problem about HIV/AIS. Wakiso district contains the capital city, Kampala and overcame HIV/HIS problem. Comparingthese three districts, I can find out how the Ugandan government should allocate spending on the primary education.
