FULL LIST: Top Secondary Schools Charge Exorbitant Fees...See How Much a Senior One Student Will Pay


In the wake of unprecedented economic challenges, parents across Uganda are joining forces to call on the government to intervene in regulating school fees, which have surged to exorbitant levels. The outcry extends beyond private institutions, encompassing even government-founded and Christian-founded schools, leaving families grappling with the burden of inflated education costs.

Families are contending with an array of economic pressures, from inflation to increased living costs, making it increasingly difficult to meet the escalating financial demands imposed by schools. The situation is particularly dire for parents with children enrolled in both private and government-founded institutions, as the cost of education continues to rise unabated.

The crisis has taken an unexpected turn with reports indicating that even government-founded schools are not immune to the spike in fees. Traditionally considered more affordable, these schools are also facing scrutiny for imposing fees that strain the financial capacities of parents, who argue that the original mandate of providing accessible education is being compromised.

Similarly, Christian-founded schools, which are often perceived as institutions with a commitment to social welfare, are also facing allegations of charging fees that are increasingly difficult for parents to bear. This has prompted questions about the alignment of these institutions with their founding principles and the impact on the broader community.

In response to this educational cost crisis, parents are now rallying to appeal to the government for urgent intervention. The collective plea is for the authorities to establish transparent mechanisms that will regulate and cap school fees, ensuring that education remains affordable for all, irrespective of economic circumstances.
