Janet Museveni while speaking at the release of the 2018 Uganda Certificate of Education-UCE examination results on Thursday said that districts have been diverting the funds to other activities which has frustrated the work of inspectors.
She says that the funds are strictly budgeted for school inspections and not anything else.
//Cue in; “I'd like to…
Cue out…purpose only.”//.
The inspection function is conducted by the Education Standards Agency (ESA).
Guidelines from the ministry indicate that inspectors of schools are expected to ensure quality learning and delivery of education. They are also supposed to regularly assess schools on whether they are sticking to the guidelines issued by the ministry.
According to the Ministry, an inspector has 40 days of inspection per term.
Janet Museveni also cautioned the public against spreading rumours on social media. Her warning comes days after social media was awash with reports that UNEB had intentionally under marked schools in Kampala while favouring Universal Primary Education-UPE schools.
