Fate Of Education In The Presence Of COVID-19

The fate of education in the presence of COVID is very blurry currently in Uganda. Since the closure of schools in March 2020, little has been said about the reopening of schools and yet it is already September. The education sector caters for a number of groups besides the students that is teachers, cooks, cleaners and so on.

The president however hinted on the reopening of schools during the national prayer day on the 29th August 2020. We honestly don’t know if it’s not too late for that since the school calendar reads third term currently. Students have been out of school for about 6 months so how will the syllabus be covered?

COVID, I must say has been an eye opener to our education system especially in most African countries. The Ministry of Education should think of taking e-learning more serious because schools would be running by now. So much has been lost during the COVID period just because schools are closed.

Most of the students won’t be going back to school because some of them have got pregnant as others are venturing into business to make money. Where does this put our education sector? This means that the rate of school drop outs has drastically increased this year. Not just that, but also some teachers have ventured into other businesses and most likely they won’t be going back to the board.

We can’t put the blame on the ministry because this has been a world wide issue. However, if after a few years, the education system doesn’t change then we shall definitely say that the ministry of education has learned nothing and forgotten nothing during this period. The fate of the education sector therefore remains unclear.
