For decades, Ugandan children’s economic background has determined their educational outcomes and prospects in life. Poorer children are seven times more likely to drop out of primary school than their wealthier peers, and out of the millions of children who enroll in every primary school cycle, 70% drop out by primary 7 (seventh grade). While the passing of the Universal Primary Education (UPE) Program increased enrollment from 3.1 million in 1996 to 8.4 million in 2015, government and independent reports suggest that there has been a significant drop in the quality of education children receive, particularly in rural public schools.
