The school of Education of Makerere University and the ministry of Education and Sports are organizing a mega symposium to assess and devise strategies to deal with impacts of Covid-19 on the education sector.

Dr Mathias Mulumba, the dean, broke this news to the media on November 12, adding that already several pre-symposium activities are in advanced stages. A number of technical working groups (TWGs) based on identified themes were formed long ago and are doing a lot of research.  

Dubbed the National Stakeholders Symposium on Covid-19 and Education, it will take place November 24 to 26 at Imperial Royale Hotel Kampala, under the theme, ‘Getting back a right to quality education during and after the Covid-19 pandemic’.

The meet will include diverse stakeholders such as students, parents and guardians, public and private education institutions, non-governmental organisations, development agencies and academics in various fields.

Timothy Sejjoba, a principal education officer at the ministry, said the symposium will formulate a ‘National Participatory Consolidated Plan of Action on Covid-19 and Education’.

He called upon private institutions’ administrators to audit and establish their situation and raise the flag to authorities so that the latter devise appropriate solutions.
