Does Uganda's education sector need an overhaul?
Does the education system need to be overhauled and have the emphasis removed from studying for periodic exams towards a more utilitarian and practical system?

The recent release of the 2016 Uganda Certificate of Education results showed that there has been a drop in performance from the previous year, with mainly science subjects and English being performed poorly.

However, beyond the poor performance, the results revealed a familiar pattern with the schools in urban areas, especially around the central region, perfoming well while the north and east continued perfoming poorly.

The discussion of the results leads to a wider discussion about the nature of the education system in Uganda and whether it needs to be overhauled and to have the emphasis removed from studying for periodic exams towards a more utilitarian and practical system.
