Since 1960 most of the countries in middle Africa have gained their independence and are confronting the great problems of nation building and economic development. The entire region shows both a popular enthusiasm for education and a conviction among leaders that education is a key to economic and social development. This bulletin has been developed in response to an increased need for basic information on the educational system in Uganda. The bulletin describes various levels and types of education in Uganda with emphasis upon curriculum and course content. It is based to a large extent on selected documents concerning education published or issued by the Uganda Government or schools from 1953 through 1962. The bulletin contains summaries of several of these documents that are not widely available in the United States, and extensive excerpts from some of them, such as course syllabuses used in the Uganda schools. This basic information and selected documentation should serve, then, to increase American understanding of education in that country. Appended are: (1) Senior Secondary Entrance and Junior Secondary Leaving Examination (J.S. II) in English: 1959; (2) Training Colleges for primary-grade, primary-grade domestic science, and junior-secondary school teachers: 1961; (3) Syllabus for the 15-Week Assistant Administrative Officers' Course at the Nsamizi Training Center: 1960; and (4) The 1963 Recommendations of the Uganda Education Commission: A Summary. (Contains 140 footnotes and 3 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
