In a bold move to address the persistently poor performance of students in Nakaseke District, Ignatius Koomu Kiwanuka, the Nakaseke District LCV Chairperson, has implemented a rigorous assessment strategy. Approximately 40 P7 teachers are currently undergoing assessment tests at Nakaseke Technical Institute.

The decision to subject teachers to Primary Leaving Examinations (P.L.E) papers stems from the disappointing results recorded in the 2023 P.L.E. Koomu Kiwanuka expressed grave concern over the district’s performance and emphasized the importance of educators possessing a solid grasp of the subjects they teach.

Each teacher is required to sit for the same paper administered to P.7 candidates in 2023, tailored to the subject they teach. The pass mark set is at 60%. Those who fail to meet this benchmark will face repercussions, including undergoing a refresher course and being demoted to lower classes.

Koomu Kiwanuka reiterated his stance on the importance of academic proficiency among educators, stating, “You can’t teach what you don’t know!” This move underscores his consistent warnings to teachers over the past six years to prioritize academic excellence or face the consequences.

The assessment process signals a proactive approach by the district authorities to uplift educational standards and ensure students receive quality instruction. It also serves as a wake-up call for educators to continuously enhance their knowledge and teaching abilities for the betterment of Nakaseke District’s education system.
