ABSTRACT

The study sought to establish the effects of ban on holiday teaching on academic performance

in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. This study aimed to establish the effect of

abolishing holiday teaching on academic performance in secondary schools, students’

perception of the ban on holiday teaching practice and identify strategies schools have

adopted to offer remedial classes in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. The research

method adopted was descriptive cross sectional research design using both quantitative and

qualitative approaches. The researcher used sample of senior three students, teachers and

head teachers answer sample size of 175 respondents. Quantitative data analysis was done

using descriptive statistics and Pearson chi-square tests at a 0.05 level of significance. The

questionnaires and interview guide were the data collection instruments. The study

found out that the ban on holiday teaching tuition did not negatively affect academic

performance in secondary schools in Soroti Municipality. The study established that holiday

teaching was stressful; most students had little interest in it and could fatigue them. The

study established that holiday teaching was a strategy for syllabus coverage. It was therefore

recommended that: the MoE&S strengthens its surveillance team to prevent the practice, the

MoE&S strongly and impartiall enforces the policy on holiday teaching practice, and the

MoE&S gives a circular to head teachers identifying general strategies for remedial classes

for all schools to observe in the teaching time, that there is need to reduce syllabus content to manageable levels.
