Teacher Issues in Uganda
Teacher Issues in Uganda, A shared vision for an effective teachers policy, Ugandan Ministry of Education and Sport, UNESCO-IIEP Pôle de Dakar, July 2014.
This TISSA report provides a holistic overview of teacher issues in Uganda that are based on a meticulously undertaken assessment using the methodological guidelines for the analysis of teacher issues in sub-Saharan African countries, a UNESCO initiative. The results indicate that Uganda faces demographic pressure with increasing number of school going age population that translates into the need for more teachers, especially in basic education. The study indicates that there is low performance especially in literacy and numeracy that requires attention. It is therefore important that the Ministry puts more effort to address the issue of retention in schools and strengthen the pre-service training and in-service training, to ensure sufficient number of qualified teachers and instructors.
