Education and Tax Justice in Uganda
Description: This video highlights some of the effects of the underfunding of education in Uganda, such as inadequacy of school facilities, excessive number of students per classrooms, families having to pay extra fees. It uses testimonies from Kinju school in Nebbi District (West Nile region). Yet the country is losing colossal sums of money estimated above 1 trillion annually (CSBAG, 2015) in tax give aways and corruption. This amount of money would be sufficient to run the entire education budget education and provide the salary increment demanded by teachers, improve infrastructure, provide free meals to children and other needed educational materials. ActionAid is advocating for the closing of tax loopholes to grow Uganda’s stagnating Tax: GDP ratio (currently only 11%) to increase the resource envelope (so 20% of the GDP comes from taxes), allocate at least 20% of the national budget to education so it can be free and good quality and ensure improved accountability and its commitment in the fight against corruption.
