ABSTRACT

The study investigated the factors affecting academic performance of learners with special needs in primary schools of Kolir Sub-County of Bukedea district. A survey research design was used to achieve these objectives. A questionnaire and interview guide were developed and used to solicit responses from respondents. Frequent counts and percentages were used to determine the factors in the said primary schools. It was found that: 1) There was inadequate funding of special schools and indeed primary schools. A factor that contributed to poor academic performance of learners with special needs. 2) The government and parents should intensify the feeding programmer at schools to help not only to improve performance but also retain the learners at school. 3) Emphasis be put on inclusive education to help reduce stigma on the learners with special needs. It was therefore concluded that: 1) Funding of education of learners with special needs be given the attention that it deserves. 2) It is imperative that learners with special needs be fed while at school. 3) Inclusive education be given emphasis. On the basis of the above conclusions. it was recommended that: 1) There is need for government to increase financial assistance to schools of learners with special needs and provide not only adequate teachers but also other facilities and amenities to help them contribute to the national economy. 2) There is need to sensitise the parents to provide lunch for the children while at school as this would help then not only to concentrate on their studies but also to stay in school. 3) There is need for more primary schools to be brought on board to offer inclusive education as this would help reduce the stigma of the learner with special needs.
