Uganda needs quality educational research.

Mugimu, Christopher B.; Hite, Steven J.


Quality educational research in developing countries such as Uganda can only be achieved by addressing the major challenges namely the lack of basic, valid and reliable information concerning the state and condition of education, educational institutions and practices and the various constituencies. The purpose of this paper is to provoke stakeholders interested in education in Uganda to realize the role of educational research in addressing such questions as (1) What education policies, programmes and practices work best - and why? (2) How can things such as expenditures, teacher training, pedagogical and curricular practices, etc. be managed? How can governmental, international agency, and personal/family investments in education be made to maximize the personal and social return on these investments? The paper provides some suggestions for the way way forward.
