The Ministry of Education and Sports has embarked on the second phase self-study material distribution nationwide. The materials introduced as one of the interventions ensure that learners continue learning during the lockdown.
A circular issued by Ismael Mulindwa, the chairperson of the covid19 education response committee, indicates that the government has printed 5.43 million copies to benefit learners in upper primary and lower secondary. Unlike the previous batch printed and distributed by Vision Group, the ministry this time around contracted three different publishers including; Baroque Publishers, MK Publisher, and Fountain Publisher to take on the duty.
According to the printing and distribution plan, baroque publishers will be supplying the eastern region with 1.6 million copies. The fountain will supply the central region with 1.78 million copies while MK publishers will be distributing 2.12 million copies to the northern and western regions.
In a recent interview, Alex Kakooza, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, noted that in the new distribution plan, learners will receive the materials from their respective schools both government and private.
