Going interdisciplinary in Uganda's education system

  • S Namusisi

Abstract



This study presents the relevance of interdisciplinary education, the crisis in which Uganda's education system is, where specialisation is at its peak. It analyses the form of the present curriculum, which leaves the learner in state of dilemma. The author again shows the need for interdisciplinarity, tries to find out whether there is a trace of it in our system, and how it can benefit the recipients. In presentation, the study takes us through the education system right from Primary to University level to see how the government, through the ministry of Education has organised the studies. This study is based on observation of the school curriculum as followed by Educational Institutions and data documented regarding this curriculum and education regulations. Other information is attained from literature. In conclusion the study finds that Uganda's education system needs transformation if it is to produce people who can sustain themselves and their jobs in this global world. It recommends that an integrative curriculum be put in place so that a learner is exposed to unity or connectedness of disciplines for a better future
