BSTRACT

This study established the relationship between Universal primary education and academic

performances of pupils' in Sissa Sub County Wakiso district Uganda. Specifically, the study

wanted to establish (i) the relationship between teaching/learning resources (ii) teacher

pupil ratio (ii) pupils' attendance and academic performance of pupils in Masulita Sub

County Wakiso district.

The study was descriptive and co-relational in nature based on quantitative approach

involving 52 teachers and 225 pupils' selected from five schools in the Sub County using

stratified random sampling Primary data on school resources, teacher pupil ratio and pupils

attendance were collected using self administered questionnaires and analyzed by summary

statistics (e.g. Means and standard deviations) and Pearson Linear Co-efficient. Data on

pupils' performance were obtained from the selected school with permission of school

administrators and summarized using the same statistics.

The study found significant relationship between teaching/learning resources; teacher pupil

ratio and pupils' academic performance while the relationship between pupils' attendance

and their academic performance was found to be insignificant. From these findings

appropriate conclusions and recommendations were made. The recommendations form the

study were; (i) Government and other relevant stakeholder should ensure that there is

provision of the basic teaching/learning resources to enable teachers be well equipped

to enhance their delivery in order to bring about improvement in performance of pupils

(ii) There is a need to hire teacher basing on the number of pupils in the school and to

determine the maximum pupil per teacher beyond which pupils can be divided into

streams to bring about closeness between the teacher and the pupil and to enable

teacher to cater for individual attention (iii) There should be a joint effort by teachers'

parent and other stake holders in encouraging pupils to always attend classes as

missing classes mean missing to get what will constitute the assessment and in turn

this brings poor performance, and (iv) School feed1ng programmes need to be

established in all UPE schools in Sissa Sub County to attract pupils stay at school

throughout the day since being hungry makes some pupils leave school before time to go and get what to eat from homes.
