 Primary school enrolment by classand sex (Government)

 Table 3.2a reveals that enrolment in government primary schools stood at 106,291 of which 51.4 percent were male and 48.6 percent female.  Pupil’s enrolment decreases as pupils go into high levels of learning and this could probably be due to dropout rates.

 At sub county level, Zirobwe had the highest number of pupils enrolled in primary school with 11,902 pupils followed by Butuntumula and Katikamu sub counties (11,490 and 11,386 pupils respectively) The sub county which had the least number of enrollment of pupils was Luwero Sub County at five percent compared to 11.1 percent for Zirobwe this calling for more resource allocation in school facility grant (SFG) in order to reduce spill over as pupils go to other sub counties which have schools. For detailed information refer to the Table 3.2.a below.

Primary school quality indicators

Quality indicators provide a picture on the learning/teaching classroom environment in terms of overcrowding, pupil-teacher contact and availability of learning/teaching materials. The Pupil Teacher Ratio (PTR) and the Pupil Classroom Ratio (PCR) were computed during the analysis. The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS) policy recommends both a PTR and a PCR of 52:1. The District PTR was 47 pupils per teacher which is a bit lower.  At sub-county level Bamunanika Sub County had the highest PTR of (64) while Kalagala Sub County had the lowest PTR at (37).  Results further revealed that the overall Pupil Classroom Ratio (PCR) for Luwero District was 58:1 pupil per class which is above the recommended of 52 pupils per class. At sub-county level, Bombo T/C had the highest PCR of 90 students per class while Nyimbwa Sub County had the lowest of 30 students per class. The overall Pupil Stance Ratio (PSR) for Luwero district was 56 pupils per stance in government schools.  At sub-county level, Bombo TC had the highest PSR of 95 students while Luwero T/C had the lowest PSR of 41 pupils per stance and this could be an indicator of poor hygiene if not maintained well. Pupils Desk was also among the issue that was assessed to measure the quality of performance of pupils in terms of crowding over roll the district had PDR of 5 pupils per desk which was higher than the recommended of 3 pupils per desk calling for more budget allocation to reduce the problem of crowding.

Primary school teachers

Teachers guide and direct learners in gaining knowledge, attitudes and skills whilst following a definite curriculum. The quality and number of staff was an important determinant of the quality of education within an institution.

 The Table below depicted that more than half of teachers had a qualification of a certificate at 66.5 percent and 26.4 percent at diploma level. This explains the fact that as people achieve higher level of qualifications the fewer they reduce in numbers. Female’s teachers had more qualifications at certificate at 10.5percent more than their male counterparts .Bamunanika County registered having more teachers than Katikamu County at the level of certificate while at diploma level, Katikamu County was dominating with the difference of 5.4 percent. There was a little variation of 0.2 percent   among the female teachers with Master degree qualifications. This further explained the fact that more teachers with certificate and diploma were required at this level of education (primary) than the 0.4% qualification at masters who would be desirable at higher level of secondary and tertiary.

Primary Leaving Examination Performance

 The number of candidates that registered for Primary Leaving Examinations in the year 2016 rose from 10760 to 11095 pupils in 2016 and 11328 in 2017, which represents an increment of

1.6 percent and the dropout rate increased by 1.2 percent in 2017. Out of the total candidates that registered for PLE, nearly 3.5percent (392 candidates) never sat for the Examinations, while 12.4 percent (1323 candidates) were upgradeable. The most probable reason for the big number of drop out could be pregnancy related or early marriages for the case of females since they accounted for a bigger percentage on the total number of dropouts.

Table 5.4 shows that majority of the candidates (42.1 percent) passed in division two, while the minority (11.2 percent) passed in division one. Wobulenzi Town Council merged the best performer with 37.7 percent passing in division one, followed by Luwero T/C (34.9 percent) and Bombo T/C (10.8 Percent).There was an increment in performance of all schools especially in the three town councils, the poorest performing sub county was Kamira at (1.3%). The 15.9 percent pupils who passed in grade U and X calls for more efforts to address this situation.

Secondary school enrolment by class and sex (government)

Table 3.8 reveals that of total enrollment registered in secondary was (21,070),49.1 percent  were female and 50.9 males. This explains the  diminishing trend  in the number of pupils as they join secondary level were 85221 pupils who had completed primary level never joined secondary and this was much explained by the national percentage of 86 percent  pupils who were enrolled  at primary level, only half(36 percent) continued to secondary. As policy makers there is unmet on the on the issue of dropout rate since Enrollment in classes decreases as level increase. At sub county level Kamira Sub County registered the lowest level of completion up to S.6 while Bombo TC had the highest number of students who had completed up to this level calling for more infrastructures to be put up (secondary schools) and more teachers recruited to teach in those schools to avoid spill over in other sub counties

The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports (MoESTS) policy recommends both a PTR and a PCR of 52:1. The District PTR is 41 pupils per teacher which is slightly lower than National.  At sub-county level Nyimbwa Sub county had the highest PTR of (78) while Kamira Sub county had the lowest PTR at (12) which means that enrollment in secondary in Kamira sub county is still low where pupils do not continue to secondary level therefore as policy makers and stake holders at large there was need to device means to reduce the dropout rate in this sub county.  Results further revealed that the overall Pupil Classroom Ratio (PCR) for Luwero District was 61 pupil per class which was above the recommended of 42 pupils per class. At sub-county level, Makulubita S/C had the highest PCR of 80 students per class while Kikyusa Sub County had the lowest of 34 students per class which explains that Kikyusa S/C being under cattle corridor it is sparsely populated, few pupils join secondary in the area visa vie the location of schools. The overall Pupil Stance Ratio (PSR) for Luwero district was 48 pupils per stance in government schools.  At sub-county level, Nyimbwa SC had the highest PSR of 75 students while Kikyusa S/C had the lowest PSR of 26 pupils per stance.
