By Solomon Muyita PROPRIETORS of private schools in Kampala district are to hold a one-day workshop on May 18 to review their operations. Mr J.B. Mujjumba, the acting National Chairman of Private Education Institutions Association, told Education Vision last week that at least three officials; the proprietor, a board member and the head teacher are expected from all the 1,450 private schools in the city. “We shall train them in good governance, maintaining quality teachers and good learning environment, qualities of a good school, accountability and challenges in retaining their clients, the parents,” he said. The meeting is to be held at St. Lawrence Citizen High School. Mujjumba said that they would also discuss the taxation of private schools and the ever-growing problem of power separation. “We’ve realised that some technical staff in these schools are taking proprietors for a ride. They capitalise on their ignorance of the laws governing schools and end up exploiting them, but we shall solve this. Each of them should know their own roles,” Mujjumba added. He was speaking at Namungoona High School, a private school on Hoima Road. The school was almost closed recently due to a family wrangle between the owners. Mujjumba met the school administration and warned them of its possible closure if they did not follow the correct procedure. if they do not follow the laid down procedures. He said that similar workshops will be conducted throughout the country. Ends
