1. BAGUMA, Thomas William

Institution: Makerere Univeristy, Kampala, Uganda.
Position: Institute Registrar.
Address: Institute of Adult and Continuing Education, Makerere Univeristy, P.O.Box 7062, Kampala, Uganda.
E-mail: bagth@yahoo.com
Country experience: Uganda is committed to enhancing education, both at Primary, secondary, and tertiary levels. The country has adopted the Universal Primary Education policy, to enable all children access basic education, while opportunities for universal secondary education are still being debated upon. The increase in number of private universities is a positive indicator of the liberalization of education in the country. The challenge however is that not withstanding the evident indicators of growth in the education sector, the country needs to further initiate programmes and policies that reflect our development needs, to address the existing discrepancies between education as a tool of empowerment, and the practical development problems affecting the economy.
