Ministry of Education issues fresh orders for schools

KAMPALA- Uganda’s education and sports ministry has directed schools and institutions that are opting for online learning not to charge parents or students any fees for this arrangement.

The ministry’s Permanent Secretary in a July 7th letter, Alex Kakooza says the government fully supports online learning but stressed that parents and students are lodging complaints that their institutions are asking for fees.

“This has meant that a sizable number of learners, whose parents are unable or unwilling to pay these high charges, are being left out,” wrote Kakooza in part.

Kakooza went on and advised parents whose learners are doing international programmes, to discuss and come to agreements with the schools managements on the fees structure.

“The school management body should urgently engage parents of learners of the international curriculum to discuss and come to an agreed position on reasonable fees for effective online learning to take place,” Kakooza added.

The PS highlighted that the government is funding the development of relevant materials by the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) to support home study for this group of learners.“The school management should therefore guide learners to make use of these standardized materials, which are free of charge,” he asserted.
