WHY IT IS NEEDED
Even though many students in Uganda are in school learning, the education system faces a number of challenges that underpin its quality as well as the output of students that come out of it. However, to a smaller extent, the decision-makers involve key stakeholders such as parents, teachers and students as they come up with solutions to tackle the key challenges students face.
We organise an annual dialogue bringing together key stakeholders in the education sector including line ministry, teachers, students, parents, local government, developing partners and experts. We dive into conversations around factors and policies that impact the education sector and we aim to take informed action steps to influence them. We believe that from dialogues, conclusive decisions can be derived; different parties are able to articulate their voices and share their experiences. So far, 2 dialogues have been carried out, 180 students have been engaged, 50 teachers have been involved and 25 schools reached.
