  • Abstract:

    Existing literature asserts that there are continuing challenges towards the implementation of Universal Primary Education (UPE) in Uganda which include: inadequate capacity for effective accountability of financial resources; inadequate basic infrastructure; inadequate community support; limited communication amongst stakeholders; poor school management and poor teacher management. This article will examine the challenges within the management framework encountered during the implementation of the Universal Primary Education in order to assist via better comprehension of the nature of the Universal Primary Education policy in Uganda. Specific focus will be placed on the planning and organising challenges which hinder the successful management of Universal Primary Education in Uganda, and suitable solutions to the planning and organising challenges will be proposed in an effort to enhance the successful implementation of the Universal Primary Education in Uganda. The results generated from this article could contribute to the knowledge of the educators on the planning and organising functions and also forecast policy outcomes and probability for policy makers on the implementation of UPE. This in turn could contribute to the realisation of the second Millennium Development Goal by 2015.
