Makerere University lecturer, dosage http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-upgrader-skin.php researcher and economist Prof. Augustus Nuwagaba has criticized the government for investing less in human capacity development resulting in an unskilled labor force.
He noted that allocation of funds for vocational skills in the Ministry of Education has stagnated at 4 percent for the last 14 years which is very low.
“Government must invest in people otherwise the economy will grow and leave people behind. In fact the education system is creating poverty, approved http://cheapjuicer.xyz/wp-includes/theme-compat/comments-popup.php ” said Prof. Nuwagaba.
Nuwagaba was delivering a key note at the launch of ‘State of Uganda Population 2015’ Report themed ‘Quality Education; A foundation for Achieving Uganda’s middle income status.’
The event held at Imperial Royale Hotel on Thursday also saw the ‘State of World Population 2015’ Report launched.
“Parents sell everything to educate their children, find who later can’t earn income. This isn’t progressive.”
Nuwagaba however urged parents to change their mindsets from looking at university degrees to valuing and growing their children’s talents.
“Our government must also replicate models that worked for countries like Malaysia, Mauritius where investment is made in sectors with the biggest multiplier effect,” he said.
The two reports were officially launched by the State Minister of Finance in charge of Planning, Hon. David Bahati who asked Ugandans to embrace technical education.
Even when government has achieved on the fronts of accessibility and increasing teachers’ salaries, Hon. Bahati admitted that the curriculum needs to be reviewed. Fagil Mandy, an educationist and former UNEB Chairman also expressed the need to rejuvenate physical exercises in schools, homes and communities.
“The problem of Uganda isn’t a high population, but rather the quality. If a university graduate can’t communicate confidently or even generate ideas to solve problems of what use is their education?” asked a frustrated Mandy.
10 town councils including Abim, Bukedea, Sanga, Kisoro, Bududa also received a computer each to ease data processing.
