The Management of Universal Primary Education in Uganda

by J.C. Munene

Prior to the introduction of the Universal Primary Education (UPE), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the Ugandan Government, had undertaken to improve the quality of teaching and learning in primary education. Some of the activities in the project were designed to equip primary schools with the instructional material, textbooks and syllabi they required. Others included the improvement in the management of primary education, the training of primary teachers (Teacher Development and Management System), and the construction of new primary schools in areas where they would be accessible to a larger population of the primary school age group. This study examines the role that social capital and school climate play in creating learning readiness among UPE pupils and how the latter (learning readiness or motivation) impacts on school achievement.
