Uganda National teachers Union ( UNATU ) expresses concern over delayed government intervention on the continued commercialization education
According to UNATU  has not only locked out vulnerable children from accessing education but has also affected the quality of education especially in  public schools
Kampala and the surrounding districts are on the top list of districts where education has been highly commercialized both in private and public schools
This has also given rise to high examination malpractice,  and decline in the quality of education standards according to the UNATU survey.
Uganda being a signatory to the sustainable Development goals committed to ensuring inclusive and equitable education and promotion of longtime learning
UNATU thinks that commercialization and privatization of education is becoming a threat to the right of quality education for majority learners
Baguma says this is most likely to completely sink the education sector, a glory that might be hard to reverse
The  recommendations were:
 UNATU called upon government to take charge in regulating privately owned and government aided schools by enhancing teacher’s s salaries equally, among other things.
The commissioner of education said government is yet to come up with modalities of regulation of school dues in accordance with education policies.
Quality education to all learners still remains a mandate of government.
