Salaries of science teachers to be increased with immediate effect

By Benjamin Jumbe:

President Museveni has announced that salaries of science teachers are to be increased with immediate effect.

He made the announcement while speaking at the closing of a two-day Secondary Schools’ Head Teachers’ Retreat at State House, Entebbe.

He assured the head teachers that their remunerations and that of their deputies will be slightly higher than what science teachers will get , with salaries of arts teachers to be also increased gradually in the coming years.

The President, again, called upon Head Teachers from government-aided schools to stop charging fees in Universal Education institutions.

3,000 Head Teachers from both private and government aided Secondary Schools throughout the country, attended the first ever National Retreat organized by the Ministry of Education and Sports, under the theme‘The Head Teacher as the First Inspector.’
