Today I was reading the news when I came across this article;
For the first time ever children in Uganda are benefiting from being offered a free secondary education. They drop out because of the high cost of fee’s
Why is it free?
It is free because less than half of the children in Uganda actually attend school, and those that do usually drop out by the time they reach secondary education.
This is great news!
One high school expects about 400 extra students to attend because of this change. This is giving students that don’t have the money for the education to still get one. The way the world is today you cannot get through life without an education, it is very clear that need one to succeed. I agree that education is necessary but it has almost become too necessary for how expensive it can be.
