|dc.description.abstract||This study was conducted to establish how decentralized planning affects the performance
of UPE in Tororo District Local Government.
The study had four objectives; to establish how the prioritization of needs by the
communities affects the performance of UPE, to establish how stakeholder participation
affects the performance of UPE, to establish how participatory monitoring and evaluation
of UPE affects its performance and to establish the moderating influence of government
policies on decentralized planning and the performance of UPE in Tororo District Local
The study used a case study design and adopted both quantitative and qualitative
approaches of research. The study population was 457, while the sample size selected was
307 using R.V. Krejcie and D.W Morgan, (1970).
The regression analyses have revealed that decentralized planning as an independent
variable has not significantly affected the performance of UPE in TDLG.
Among the major recommendations made was that there is need to streamline the
prioritization of UPE needs in the participatory planning process There is also need for
government to recruit more teachers to ease the burden of the high pupil-teacher ratio for
effective teaching and learning and to allow teachers take care of the slow learners who
require remedial lessons. Also, parents need to provide mid-day meals to their children in
order to improve on their performance.||en_US
