Some teachers from Bukinyale Primary School in Masaba sub county, Sironko district trek 10 kilometres daily to work due to lack of accommodation at the school.
Mohammed Sitna, the school head teacher said there is no single accommodation for the teachers forcing many to commute from their homes.
Sitna said this has affected the quality of teaching at the school.
Sitna pointed out that some teachers stay in Budadiri while others trek for long distances from up the mountain to the school.
A teacher who declined to be named said that when ever it rains some teachers can not walk on the slippery roads to school.
He called upon the district and the community to join hands and construct teachers houses within the school.
Andrew Francis Oluka , the Chief Administrative Officer said that the district lacks money for constructing teachers’ houses.
Oluka pointed out that his office has written to the Government through the Office of the Prime Minister to give special intervention.
“As a district we have forwarded the problem to the office of the Prime Minister,” Oluka said.
