The study findings showed that child labour forms impact negatively on student academic performance at Kamuli Progressive Secondary School according to the analysis made, child labor has got a number of effects both positive and negative on academic performance at Kamuli Preparatory Secondary School and also that there are suggestions on ways of minimizing child labor at Kamuli progressive Secondary school, Kamuli District. The study recommends that the children should be sensitized about the importance of educating and need for them to learn other than getting involved in child labor since this would mean a bright future for the children, the school management should encourage both the parents to send their children to school since this eventually would reduce poverty in their homes when their children have received education, Parents should be sensitized on the importance of education their children rather than using them to supplement to family income hence this should give parents the courage to face challenge and overcoming them without stopping their children from going to school and There is need for the government and other stakeholders to discourage child labor from the family level; since poverty emerged as the most constraining factor on working children. Consequently, policy reforms and poverty reduction strategies remain fundamental upstream concerns and must be pursued to tackle inequality and poverty
