New video loaded: After being closed for almost 2 years, schools in Uganda are reopened
After being closed for almost 2 years, schools in Uganda are reopened
Students returned to the classroom after Uganda ended the world’s longest school closure. More than half of the nation’s students effectively stopped learning when schools closed in March 2020.
“Imagine for two years having them. We struggled with teaching them for the first few months. Of course, it’s difficult for a parent to be tutoring their own child. Even when we tried to do private tutoring for these kids, we didn’t know for which classes are we tutoring them for. So, it’s been very complicated. It’s been very hard.” “My assumption is, even the other time taking back the children home was a mistake by the ministry. We would have managed the situation if these students were managed from schools. So, I hope that this time there is no closure again.”
