Government has been urged to speed up the re invention of new national education curriculum that will help the big graduate market to fit in the global employment demands.

According to World at School Global Youth ambassador in Uganda, Hillary Innocent Seguya, many students have graduated and ended up on streets due to lack of relevant practical knowledge needed in the job market.

“Government should emphasise student centered education that imparts students with relevant skills that will help them start up new jobs any here in the world,” notes Seguya speaking at a belated African child day celebration held at Kalinabiri primary school Ntinda.

Seguya stressed that government should rehabilitate and avail teachers with teaching essentials together with salary increment to up the education standards rather than putting up insignificant class room structures in the UPE and USE systems.

Government through the national curriculum development center is in advance stages to develop a new more practical and relevant entrepreneurship curriculum with a national exam that evaluates what students actually do in the business club, talent thus transforming the classroom into a business lab.

The Education for All Global Monitoring Report 2012 shows that over 170 million people can be lifted out of poverty simply by teaching every child in low-income countries basic reading
