According to him whatever is taught should be mirrored back to life but it’s not the case as of now.
“We were sold a scam and bought into it. Unfortunately, it’s taking us a longer time to realize that this primary education as it is is not adding any value to the life we live.”
“We are looking for authentic assessments. Let children study the environment they live in and understand it. What you teach must mirror your daily life and solve problems. We must move away from an artificial world,” he added.
Ambrose Kibuuka, an educationist however on the other hand says the only problem Uganda’s education has is standardization. He says this puts people in a place of dissatisfaction due to comparison with other education systems.
“The moment a country manages to escape that obsession with standardization and opts for optimization of the potentials of people, then the method of assessment will be twisted. The whole world is obsessed with standardization. They want to have a mechanism of comparing one person to the other, yet we are totally different.”
The country’s education system has been complained about a lot by educationists but nothing much has been done. According to them, there is so much theory involved in the syllabus that is not helpful in anyway.
