and Shortage of teachers. According to The teachers the implementation process

of UPE was very hasty and led to a shortage of teachers with those available

requirements for the children and food. The study revealed that the quality of

education in UPE is not good. When asked about the quality of education offered

in the public schools, the respondents were almost unanimous in saying that it

had gone r1own since the introduction of UPE. The study concluded that The
