THE Government is to construct 41 more seed schools in its campaign to enhance implementation of the Universal Secondary Education (USE) programme.

Seed schools are those that the Government put in place under the primary and secondary universal education, in areas where schools never existed.

The education minister, Geraldine Namirembe Bitamazire, said priority would be given to sub-counties that did not benefit from the first 41 schools that were built early this year.

“The Government is keen on ensuring that all areas generate human resource needed for the country’s development,” she said, while speaking at Namugongo Seed Secondary school in Namugongo sub-county, Kaliro district recently.

Bitamazire, who said construction will start by September, added that the Government was committed to ensuring all its programmes on education are run sustainably. “That is why in this year’s budget, the education sector took the biggest percentage,” she said.

The minister, on a tour of universal primary and secondary schools in Kaliro, was accompanied by Paul Muzaale, the senior assistant secretary in the ministry, LC5 chairman Elijah Kagoda, the chief administrative officer, Nobert Turyahikayo, the district education officer, John Peterson Basalirwa and other officials.

Bitamazire asked local leaders and the community to report administrators of seed schools who fail to perform their duties, saying they were undermining the Government’s objectives of promoting mass education.
