Government has been urged to double the number of special needs teachers at Kampala school for physically handicapped to improve quality of education.
Juliet Tumuhairwe head teacher says teacher to student ratio is still low to deliver quality teaching standards.
She also wants government to provide reading materials, wheel chairs and provision of class room block to accommodate the growing number of students saying facilities available are inadequate.
“we need close to fifty teachers to over see the big number of students in classroom. The current ratio of 1:10 is not good enough to deliver quality education standard besides the inadequate classroom for students,” Tumuhairwe said.
She was speaking ahead of the 50th anniversary of the school that will take place on 26th October in Mengo under the theme: Soring beyond disability.
Started 50 years ago, the school has produced able bodied professionals namely lawyers,engineers and doctors who are serving the nation since 1969.
