African Commission Cautions Uganda Over Privatisation In Education

In a series of recommendations published this week, the African Commission on Human And Peoples’ Rights (African Commission) expressed its deep concerns about the growth and lack of regulation in private schools, which could be violating the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ rights.  The African Commission expressed its worry that “that the increase in the establishment of private schools […] could result in discrimination against children from low-income households. It further noted that the growth of private education “has been encouraged by the Government”, which  “raises the concern of the government gradually releasing itself from the obligation to provide quality public education”.
