Contrasting Ironies

English and Ugandan State Secondary Schools

by Fred Sheldon Mwesigwa

It would be everybody's hope that the education system of a First World country would create room for a first rate academically-oriented student body. Yet when the author, Dr. Fred Sheldon Mwesigwa, encountered education in the UK's public secondary schools, the reverse was true. In this book, he compares the dire resistance to learning in the UK schools, with the high appetite for learning among Uganda's poor students. The book raises some pertinent issues concerning British educational policies and social responsibility towards children. The discussion also raises questions concerning the parameters of students' rights vis-a-vis teachers' exercise of authority and their own rights.
