Soroti district authorities have closed three private schools for flouting operating requirements.

 

 

The affected schools include Dakabela High School, Trinity and Mary Land Primary Schools, all in Arapai Sub County in Soroti district.

 

Dakabela High School is accused for operating without qualified teachers, proper management and lacks sufficient classrooms. The school also has poor toilet facilities.

 

 

Simon Enangu, the Inspector of Schools Soroti District, says they decided to close the school for flouting the minimum operating standards despite numerous warnings.

Cue out: ... could not accept this."//

 

 

He says at Trinity primary school they found over 150 pupils sharing a single stance pit-latrine without a roof. Enangu says the situation wasn't any different at Mary Land Primary School in Arapai Sub County.

Cue out: ...we cannot allow."//

Calvin Elenyu, the Soroti District Education Secretary, says they have summoned the proprietors of the affected schools to establish their motive for ignoring the directives issued to them.

 

                   

//Cue in: "In the names ...

Cue out: ... may not be of help."//

 

Henry Odieny, the Arapai Sub County LC V councilor, says the closure of the school will impact on the learner since they parents had already cleared tuition. 

He cautioned the authorities against watching illegal schools extort money from parents. 

Joseph Edoru, a resident of Arapai Sub County wants the directors of the affected schools to be arrested and compelled to refund the money they collected from parents in tuition.

 

Attempts by URN to get a comment from the proprietors of the affected schools were futile as they were away from their respective schools. 

Soroti district education authorities are currently inspecting privately owned schools in the district.
