PRIVATE schools that do not fill annual school census statistical forms will have their licences withdrawn, the Minister of Education and Sports has warned.

Namirembe Bitamazire also warned that defiant government-aided schools would be denied capitation grants.

She directed that class teachers should daily record and submit weekly reports on class attendance to the headteachers.

In a speech read by Beatrice Wabudeya, the new presidency minister, Bitamazire said each student should have a registration number which is not transferable.

She ordered that students’ enrollment must be updated every term.

Wabudeya was closing the Senior One admission exercise at Kyambogo college School on Tuesday.

She challenged headteachers to improve communication between teachers and students to avert strikes.
Wabudeya cited the Nabumali High School strike as probably the worst in 2004.
“This culture must stop,” she said.

Wabudeya said many strikes were planned during weekends because most headteachers ignored the importance of being closer to their students especially over weekends.
She said the government had recognised all the 657 non-formal education learning centres to improve equitable access to education.

Wabudeya said the Government would provide the centres with capitation grants and instructional materials to the learners.

The commissioner for secondary education, Yusuf Nsubuga, said teachers who defile pupils would be de-registered.
