Right to Education

About the program

The program seeks to promote the right to education for all children in Uganda. The focus is on the child as the primary beneficiary of the right to education. ISER contributes to problem solving by advocating for a rights based approach to education service delivery in the country. The overall goal is to ensure access to quality education for all children in Uganda, regardless of their background or social status in an environment where education is maintained as a public good that is adequately financed, regulated and supervised by the state. The program emphacises that the state has the primary responsibility for realization of the right to education and private/non-state actors should only supplement that role.
