“The three week- strike at the beginning of the new term made pupils miss their studies and were not able to complete the syllabus as there was no teacher to lead them through the lessons,” explained Teo Nambi a mother of three.
She added that the blame is to be put on teachers for opting for their strike during the beginning of the third term which she said greatly affected children especially in candidate classes.
“We played our role as parents and sent children to school on top of providing them with all requirements but the teachers let us down,” stressed Norah Kulabako, a trader along Namirembe road.
They parents called upon government to reach for round table talks with teachers so as to solve their problems.
Teachers under their umbrella body UNATU held a three –week sit down strike protesting against refusal by government to fulfill its promise to increase their salary by twenty percent in the financial year.
