With income inequality, gender disparity and regional issues existing between many Ugandans and improving their lives, many have used education to push themselves into brighter futures. Through governmental improvements, private school options, and the sheer desire of the Ugandan people for education, progress is being made.
In 1997, Uganda implemented the Universal Primary Education Policy, which waived the fees for any student attending the first seven years of school— primary 1 to primary 7. Attendance remained voluntary, and the parents still needed to provide important supplies for the students and labor to build the schoolhouses.
Even so, primary school attendance increased 145% in the first six years after the policy was put in place.The program expanded to include secondary education in 2007. The increase in attendance is a testament to the desire for education in Uganda.
This approach has helped reduce on the level of illetracy in Uganda although the education standard is too poor especially in the rural areas like Nakabango.
Poor Parents can’t afford better schools with good education standard, this means most are left with low quality education that can’t make them compete with those in better schools. This has caused many to loose hope in our education system especially in the village.
Its hard for poor parents to send their kids to good schools. Therefore with you hand extended to the children, they can have a good education starting with USD 180 per child in primary.
