Based on descriptive survey, the study used both qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection. The data for the study were obtained through the use of school records, questionnaires, interviews and observations. Questionnaires were administered to head teachers, teachers and standard 8 pupils of Kamwimbi Zone. The study was analyzed using simple percentages, frequency distribution tables and mean statistics to answer the six questions posed by the researcher. The study found out that some children in Kamwimbi Zone have not accessed primary school education as expected. Thus it is recommended that Kamwimbi community must put up strategies to enroll all their children to school.
