Teachers Made Mistake To Bargain For Only Science Teachers – Hon. James Kakooza

Hon. James Kakooza, Uganda’s representative to the East African Legislative Assembly has blamed teachers for what is going on.

According to him UNATU should have never bargained for only the science teachers. He said this while addressing the ongoing teacher’s strike on NBS Eagle show.

“The teachers should own their mistakes. Every time you compromise a principle, it comes back to haunt you. Why would you only negotiate for science teachers? They should go back and renegotiate for equal pay for both arts and science teachers.” Hon. James Kakooza

There has been an ongoing drift between the teachers of arts and sciences. Apparently, government had promised to increase science teachers’ salaries up to Ugshs 4million.

Most teachers of arts are earning between 500,000 to 1,000,000Ugshs. The argument has been that whether science or arts, both of these are teachers.

However, some people from the public have spoken out and opposed such an idea. They say much as people want to preach equality, the two categories of teachers are different.

“Do you also mean that in school we shouldn’t have arts and science classes separate? Make arguments with a sober mind. Arts/ Sciences are not the same. Others HEG/D students could be joining engineering and medical schools,” Victor Ssekabijje.
