Educate!’s work changing the national entrepreneurship curriculum was recently highlighted in a leading Ugandan newspaper. For the Ugandan Government, it’s a work in progress. For Educate!, it’s a sign of our impact and change to come.
While the Ugandan government must overcome the hurdles described below in this article, the education reform taking place has come as a result of Educate!’s advocacy, our model’s impact, and government buy-in!
This reform includes inclusion of:
1. A more practical and relevant entrepreneurship curriculum.
2. A business club in schools.
3. A national exam that evaluates what students actually do in the business club, thus forcing the curriculum to be fully practical and transforming the classroom into a business lab.
While change can be slow, this clipping shows how Uganda is taking a huge step to a practical and relevant model of education being a fundamental part of the Uganda’s education system.
