Uganda's education system is comprised of nursery, primary, secondary and finally universal education. Over the years technical schools, commonly known as vocational schools, have become an alternative to higher secondary and university, equipping students with technical skills that they can use to earn an income or start their own businesses.

Due to the implementation of Universal Primary and Secondary Education in 2007, children who would not have been able to attend school are able to access education for free-but it is not so clear cut. The schools are poorly funded and poorly structured; the students do not receive food while at school-a cost parents cannot afford to meet; but most of all, the teachers are poorly paid, if at all, and are thus not able to fulfill their duties to the best of their ability.
