The motion was Universal Education has done more harm than good
It should be noted that the Ugandan government introduced Universal Primary Education and of recent Universal Secondary School Education where the government has aided government schools and some selected private institutions to enforce this program.
However, its on record that though many Ugandan children have got chance to be in these schools, alot needs to be accomplished as the Quality of education in government aided schools where Universal Education program is in progress shows some weaknesses but on the other side its a good step towards the journey of ensuring Ugandans get literacy and escape the bondage of poverty, disease and ignorance.
The children debated very well and the function was well attended by the KHPS Teaching Staffs, an official from RWECO Organization which is implementing a program of teaching english in schools where Kasese Humanist Primary School is among the selected few schools participating in this program.
All those who came to the floor to debate about the motion were awarded with gifts (books) courtesy of Rwenzori Consortium for Civic Competence (RWECO).
Below are photographs taken on that event.
