SCHOOL CHARACTERISTICS AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN UGANDA: EVIDENCE FROM 2001 PRIMARY LEAVING EXAMINATIONS RESULTS

Effect of staffing, supplies and facilities on primary school performance in Uganda was estimated using OLS on district level data. Parameter estimates and significance tests show that textbooks have an important influence on performance under prevailing levels of staffing and facilities. In addition, performance in schools in the northern region was lower than in the central region. This study suggests that considerable improvements in performance can be attained by additional expenditure on school textbooks.
