The Kabarole district chairperson, Richard Rwabuhinga, has asked the government to review the Education Curriculum at primary and secondary levels.

While speaking during the science and technology innovation awareness and outreach workshop organized by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation at Kabarole district headquarters last Friday, Rwabuhnga argued that the current curriculum is more theoretical than practical.  

He said that this has resulted into churning out of graduates who are job seekers than creators because they put much of their emphasis on theoretical education which is outdated worldwide. 

//Cue in: “The curriculum in…

Cue out… formation and development.”//

The LCV chairperson further asked government to equip schools with requisite science apparatus like computers and others in order to aid practical lessons, saying there cannot be innovation when students lack the basic equipment.  

In response, Dr Elioda Twesigye, the state minster for science, technology and innovations agreed with Rwabuhinga, saying that he will raise the concern to the higher authorities in-order to map a way forward.  

He added that Uganda is set to construct what he termed as indigenous knowledge institutes in all municipalities in the country within four years to boost to aid in skilling students.
