Yes they should because we are under one government
(Hassan(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 1:49 pm)
It should and emphasis should be put in rural schools
(Umaru(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 1:53 pm)
yes – but also teachers should and administrators should be guided on the new methodologies of teaching every each time
(Julius(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 1:57 pm)
Yes because it helps in influencing moral development by providing students with opportunities to assume leadership, cooperate with others, and accept responsibility for their own behavior.
(Solo(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 2:01 pm)
Yes it should be because it is the same knowledge and skills transferred and impacted the only difference is perceiving of information.
(Brenda(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 2:03 pm)
Yes – the quality should be the same because it is the basis of education but the standard can differ depending on the cost each school charges
(Muwaya(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 2:06 pm)
No because some schools pay high and need to value their costs than those that pay low costs
(Bosco(Uganda) at September 14, 2017 2:09 pm)
I think every school should be offering the same standard and quality of education. However, I think schools should also focus on classes that are suited to the needs of the people in that area. For example, children in rural schools should learn about farming techniques, but children in schools in cities may not need those skills.
(Lucy, UK at September 21, 2017 8:51 am)
yes, every school should offer the same standard and quality of Education because we use the same academic curriculum and students are examined using the same question for the final exams.
(ALFRED OCHAYA(UGANDA) at September 28, 2017 10:34 am)
No because some schools charge high which rural schools cant
(alex(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:01 am)
Yes, since all school going are entitled to quality standered of education.
(Emma(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:02 am)
We have one ministry in the country that is in charge of education and monitoring education sector so i think we should receive same quality such that it becomes easy for the ministry to monitor all the schools
(Derrick(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:03 am)
Yes, because all of them have the same goal to achieve.
(David(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:07 am)
No because some student and children in the village there standard of understanding is low while the ones in town understand quickly than the ones in the village
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:10 am)
Yes, because some schools in the villages have poor standereds, and this affects their performances.
(David(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:13 am)
No because the ones in the village to get school fees is very difficult for them while the ones in the town they are able to get school fees
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:21 am)
Hey brother Umaru, that good but don’t u think if the urbern school are also left, the quality and standereds will go down?
(Toony(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:23 am)
No because some schools in the village are in a far distant places where by transport in is needed and they have no while the ones in the town are able to get
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:30 am)
Hi brother Bosco, do you think the quality of education should depend on the school prices?
(Emma(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:35 am)
yes of cause they should offer the same standard but in villages stands are poor
(mercy (uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:40 am)
Yes and the government should ensure that all schools have the same quality structures.
(Emma(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:47 am)
No because some government schools lack library while private schools have library
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:50 am)
Does a standardised curriculum ensure #education #equality?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 11:54 am)
Yes but the goverment should make sure that all teachers are qualified.
(Tonny(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 11:55 am)
No because some school in Uganda are highly taxed
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:57 am)
How can we encourage excellent teachers to teach in the villages and not only in the cities?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:00 pm)
No some because teachers are not paid
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:01 pm)
Hi Tony, to me i think every person has a role to play and not only the teachers.
(Emma(Ugnada) at September 28, 2017 12:10 pm)
No because some schools in Uganda are not in good condition
(odoi(uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:13 pm)
Not salaries for teachers is a problem. At Future Stars in #Kibera our teachers are currently #volunteers and that makes it difficult for them to live.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:13 pm)
Without standards for teachers there will never be #equality in #education. Quality teacher training is vital.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:14 pm)
Adding practical classes relevant to the area and social situation seems important but does it restrict social mobility?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:20 pm)
Yes standardised curriculum ensured quality where it’s easy to monitor and follow
(Paul(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:28 pm)
Who monitors adherence to the standardised curriculum? Needs checks to ensure ongoing #equality.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:35 pm)
No because some teachers rape children who are girls which lead to school drop out mostly in the village
(odoi john pual(uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:37 pm)
yes because if we want to get good performance at work every school should be providing the same quality and type of education. because poor performance at work reflects the quality and type of education one received at school.
(brenda(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:37 pm)
rape should never be allowed. That is poor school management and the person should be punished very servery
(kanye at September 28, 2017 12:42 pm)
Should we be educating City kids for rural jobs and rural kids for City jobs alike? Is education currently skewed to city life?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:44 pm)
Children need protection from adults who abuse. Who can help? The schools, the government, both, or someone else?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:47 pm)
That’s frightening and horrific. A situation that needs help. Control and checks needed for anyone involved with children.

Schools should be aiming to provide an inclusive and enabling leanring environment for all students. We all learn differently so they should be creative and flexible in their approaches. We should aim for education that creates people who question the world and try to solve problems rather than people who just repeat facts.

Facts is what they ask for on exams not questions. Should we change the exams? Or maybe not evern do exams?
(Destiny at September 28, 2017 12:43 pm)

In the U.K. you have state schools which are free and private schools which you pay for and often children who attend the latter get a superior education. I believe this is unfair and helps reproduce inequality in our society. I think there should always be a national curriculum so students are equipped to enter the workplace with a similar set of skills.

What if we stop all private schools? Will it make the government take state schools serious?
(Mr cool kenya at September 28, 2017 12:14 pm)
The fact that schools are supposed to use similar curriculum they should be uniform in what they are offering to children.
(Daphine at September 28, 2017 12:24 pm)
Sounds good but what about the kids not acknowledged by the government. No government schools in #Kibera. Slum kids deserve #education too.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:25 pm)
Should parents take over and run the schools of their neighbourhoods? Then they might have more control of what is being taught to their children
(Mary USA at September 28, 2017 12:27 pm)
If good leadership and procedure is followed they would be taken serious
(Viola(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:30 pm)
In UK, parents often have a say in the running of the school through parent teacher associations (PTAs).
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:31 pm)
It is the same in Uganda and we are happy about it however I guess there should be a guide very well on what they are supposed to do and how to act
(Karen (Uganda ) at September 28, 2017 12:37 pm)
No because having the same standard leads to no enployment

Yes. I think having different standards causes problems when searching for jobs. always employers look for candidates from Harvard University and sorts of that Kind instead of focusing on the individual qualities. We need to get the same standard so that individual qualities judge us.

(Stephen at September 28, 2017 11:56 am)
No.. Because we can never receive and access similar standards and quality because not all teachers have good teaching materials
(Matia at September 28, 2017 11:58 am)
Because all teachers go through the same training we should have the same quality of education.
(Godfrey at September 28, 2017 11:59 am)
Does the same standard mean the same curriculum?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:13 pm)
Yes it means same the only difference is the level of classes

Yes we can have the same education as long as the teachers are guided
(Hassan (Uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:57 am)
i think the government should provide good transport to village schools
(Daniel(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:39 pm)
I agree. Everybody should be able to access education and access the same quality of education. Perhaps if everyone was educated to the same levels and there were no opportunities for those who already have money to pay for a better education, then everyone would be more equal and there would be less poverty in the world.
(Anonymous at September 28, 2017 12:41 pm)
If the problem of school fees is sorted out and government schools in uganda provide good quality education then it can reduce on the number of children on the streets

If they don’t, does that mean you have to be rich to pay for the best quality? If it’s not equal, the poorest are going to miss out.

Children should have the same education otherwise there will be a lot of discrimination
(Stephen at September 28, 2017 12:00 pm)
If the government introduces free education and it’s monitored well I think the poor won’t miss out because they can also attend
(Tonny(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 12:40 pm)
The quality should be high, but that doesn’t mean the subjects taught and curriculum should be the same. Students (and countries and towns) have differing needs.

Yes. the problem is that life in village is different. it involves a lot of work like gardening and rearing of Animal. but we should try to also make the village schools be on the same level as that of the town schools.

Daniel, do you think village schools need to teach different skills than city schools because skills needed for life are different?
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 11:45 am)
To have a much better quality children attending school should be given same examination every time they sit for exams
(Tonny at September 28, 2017 11:50 am)
Absolutely Yes. town boys has no hope of leaving to the villages. we should also make village boys the same other than teaching village boys about town jobs and the leave the villages to towns. this is contributing to food scarcity in some countries even when they have fertile land for growing food
(Daniel(Uganda) at September 28, 2017 11:54 am)
Excellent comment Daniel. #education shouldn’t drive everyone out of their communities and into business. Rural jobs are vital.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:09 pm)
Some teachers dont love to live in the rural setting they want the urban setting so the rural kids can miss out. How can we get teachers to love rural life?

No. the schools in village has to teach children in village about the things that can help them in village and vise versa to the ones in town so that we can depend on each other well. this can also help children in villages to stay there and not come to town to cause congestion in town

Agree that the poorer people are often in the villages but also in the urban slums. Definitely less likely to get a quality education.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 11:36 am)
alex i dont agree with you because we need a society where we are well varsity with everything. if children in the villages are only taught things concerning the village likewise to the children in town then it means the level of development will be slow in some places. maybe if you can say we need more practical skills in our education than history.. thanx

I think that the word ‘standard’ is problematic. Everyone learns differently. Therefore I think that every school should be equipped to offer equitable opportunities to quality education. What I mean by this is that all children should be able to attend the same school, but that the training and funding given to teachers should enable them to support all the learners in their class to obtain the learning objectives. But I also think that children should be consulted when decisions are made about how they learn best.

No human is #different. Everyone is #equal. All deserve the same. No #discrimination. A person is a person no matter anything else.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:10 pm)
Since some schools have limited access to education it is difficult for all to receive the same education and quality.
(David at September 28, 2017 12:23 pm)
Certainly when #education resources are expensive, some schools don’t get the same opportunities.
(Chaffinch at September 28, 2017 12:29 pm)
Chaffinch how can we get and mobilise for those expensive educational resources for the poor
(Asio(Austria) at September 28, 2017 12:45 pm)
Could poorer communities/schools have resources subsidised by the government as a step to #education #equality?

Yes, we have curriculums to try to make sure that every child gets to learn the things identified as important by society. If we said just teach what you like then some children will miss out on key skills. We just need to make sure the people setting the curriculum do it with the best interest of the child.

Maybe we shouldn’t be offering education at all but instead of giving children the answers trying to teach them to solve problems and be curious thinkers. Blindly copying and accepting information that is given to us has been shown to be very dangerous throughout history.

I believe that every school should offer the same standard and quality of education. However, like Debbie said, people learn in different ways and at different speeds so I don’t agree that every school should offer the same type of education. Practical learning suits some people better than classroom learning and vice versa.

Yes, it would be good but the challenge comes in due to the location of the school say urban and rural. It becomes very difficult to provide quality and same education in rural areas as compared to urban areas due to different factors. And of which there is no way (not easy) for the government to make the country equally developed.
