  • Mr Alex Kakooza, the Ministry of Education permanent secretary, on Tuesday asked the public to allow the ministry start the implementation and improve along the way.

The newly revised lower secondary curriculum that was scheduled for implementation this school term has been halted for the second time in four years to allow government to fix the deficiencies.
Parliament voted to halt the implementation on Tuesday after stormy proceedings. The House asked the Ministry of Education to suspend the curriculum until government is ready to implement it.
