Reforming the Universal Primary Education: Does performance pay for teachers provide a lasting solution?

Public services should be provided with an aim of being efficiently and equitably available to all citizens (Grout & Stevens, 2003). Governments therefore must intervene to ensure this effective delivery of services by managing key challenges faced as they implement. This analysis will focus on analysing the reforms undertaken by the Ugandan government in reforming the education sector to ensure quality basic education. Specifically focus will be on the primary level education implemented through the Universal Primary Education (UPE) under the Education Strategic Investment Plan (ESIP) (MoESTS, 2015) and how parliament as an arm of government can be instrumental in ensuring effective implementation of the reforms.
