Addressing Barriers to Learning Outcomes in Education
By Maxine Kampire, World Vision Uganda Teacher John Omara didn’t like teaching children in the first three years of primary school – he thought they were unable to learn. Today, proudly listening to his third-year students read aloud, John has never been more fulfilled. In a district where almost no primary 3 pupils can read or understand an English story, John’s class at Olekai Primary in Amuria breezes through their English notebooks with great articulation and confidence. Most can read at a primary 7 level.
