The bishop of the diocese of Kinkizi Rt Rev Dan Zoreka has urged the government to find a lasting solution to the current industrial action by arts and primary school teachers so that children can get back to school and continue with their studies.
The bishop made these remarks yesterday while speaking to members of the diocesan school management committees and stakeholders in the diocese of Kinkiizi during a one-day workshop that was held at St Peter’s cathedral in Nyakatare Kanungu district adding that negotiations between teachers and government authorities should be used to come up with constructive ideas so that education continues uninterrupted.
Sunday Charles the Kanungu district education officer urged all education stakeholders to play their respective roles towards the success of education institutions.
He called for transparency, integrity, accountability, communication, and advocacy for the development of educational institutions in Uganda.
Rev Dr Paul Kakooza the director church of Uganda education services said the church of Uganda has founded so many education institutions from early childhood centers to universities but said this is just a supplement to government efforts since many of these schools are government-aided.
Ronald Kiberu the commissioner of human resources at the ministry of education and sports taught participants the roles and responsibilities of foundation bodies, school management committees, and board of governors in schools saying each of them is backed by an act of parliament.
