KUPPET Demands That Grade 7 Be Domiciled in Secondary Schools
Secondary school teachers now want the government to revert a decision to domicile Grade 7 students in primary schools.
KUPPET is calling for a crisis meeting involving stakeholders to discuss the fate of junior secondary learning.
The union SG Akello Misori said it’s not too late to take back the learners to secondary school.
“It is common sense that building more classrooms in secondary schools which already have laboratories is more cost-effective than trying to create whole new infrastructure in primary schools,” Misori said.
Misori explained that the proposal to revert the decision should be treated as an urgent matter.
“If we are to return them to secondary schools which are more equipped then we need to do it before the end of Holliday,” he said.
The union chair Omboko Milemba said all education stakeholders will be engaged on the matter.
Milemba said the main issue facing the Grade 7 transition is lack of teachers.
“We will sit with stakeholders and if worse, we might talk to our teachers and tell them to take some letter with a different payment to teachers Grade 7,” Milemba said.

Milemba who is also Emuhaya MP said no learning has been taking place.
“Students have no teachers, no books so it’s clear we made a mistake,” he said.
