Policy Incoherencies and Research Gaps in Uganda’s Primary Education Sub-Sector

  • Bruno Lule Yawe

Registered author(s):

    The elimination of school fees at Uganda’s primary education level was accelerated by the 1996 first direct presidential elections. Since the inception of the universal primary education in 1996 and its actual operationalization in 1997, universal primary education is synonymous with primary education. Because school fees were eliminated before infrastructural improvements in the school system had been carried out, the access shock created by the elimination of fees resulted in a substantial initial decrease in resources available per pupil, and a large increase in the pupil-teacher ratio. The purpose of this study is to identify the policy incoherencies as well as research or knowledge gaps relating to Uganda’s primary education.
