The Ministry of Education has suspended the expansion of Bridge International schools in Uganda over poor infrastructure and academic standards.

In a letter dated April 6, 2016 signed by the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Education, Rose Nassali Lukwago, the owners of the school have been ordered to halt their expansion with immediate effect.

"Following this rapid expansion, the Ministry is greatly concerned about several issues, but not limited to the legality according to the Education Act 2008, the quality of infrastructure, teachers' issues, methodology and curriculum," Nasali said in the letter.
