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.
