Poor performance of students in government schools attributed to headteachers’ lack of supervision
Poor performance of students in government schools has been attributed to Head Teachers who do not carry out enough supervision, but rather engage in other activities outside the school.
This was sounded by the Deputy Resident District Commissioner Mbarara district Emmy Katera Turyabagyenyi, during a press briefing at his office yesterday.
Katera said Private schools are performing better than government schools because the proprietors are very serious and always supervise their teachers, closely.
He added that, most government Head teachers tend to spend much of their time doing other activities, adding that, this leads to reluctance and laziness by teachers, who sometimes do not report on duty.
He further said that as security team, they are going to carry out enough monitoring in all government schools, to have such Head Teachers apprehended.
