The Ministry of Education and Sports is moving to crack down schools that use paper results to woe parents and attract students.
The move was on Friday announced by the director of Education Standards in the ministry of education Dr. Kedrace Turyagyenda at a closure of Inter University debate championship held at Bishop Stuart University in Mbarara.

Dr. Turyagyenda said that there are schools that have totally neglected the critical parts of education system that is the head, heart and the skills and only concentrated on head pumping pupils and students with exams, tests, notes just to pass exams.

She added that these are responsible for the poor quality of young generation interims of employable skills, attitude and values. She noted that this is why you employ first class degree holders and those with better grades ,and you doubt whether they went to school or not. They are corrupt, can’t deliver simply because they lack other aspects of education like values, attitude and skills.

She warned that such schools risk closure if found working to the holistic development of the children of Uganda.

Former UNEB Chairman, education consultant and the patron Uganda Dialogue Arena Fagil Mandy who organized the competition said that while the young people remain better placed to transform and revolutionalise Uganda and Africa in general but have not been given space to participate in issues that can affect this.

Over 200 students from 21 Universities in Uganda participated in this 5th National Inter University Creative Arts Expo and Debate championship that was won by Cavendish University, Uganda.
