SCHOOL administrators have been asked to ensure that teachers stick to the schedules of their lessons.

The Minister for Education, Geraldine Namirembe Bitamazire, said the curriculum was based on a timed programme sub-divided into school terms and lesson periods, emphasising that breaking this sequence would contribute to poor academic performance.

“Every hour a teacher loses on a school day means loss of a mark during the final examination because you cannot find time to cover what you missed teaching,” the minister said. She was addressing the teachers and parents of Kock Primary School in Nebbi during the launch of a housing scheme for primary teachers in Arua and Nebbi districts.

The sh8.8b project, funded by the Netherlands government and the World Food Programme, would be rolled out in different districts if it helped improve the student’s academic performance.

The Netherlands ambassador, Jeroen Verhenl, said they hope the project would reduce drop out rates in the West Nile region. Statistics show that only 22% of the female and 57% of male pupils complete primary education in the area.
