The first schools in Uganda were built by the missionaries. No child was allowed to attend a school if it belonged to a denomination different from the ones its parents subscribe to. Muslim children were not able to receive education since both catholic and protestant founded schools mostly refused to accept them and no funding was available from outside to establish Muslim school. The colonial government did not participate in the establishment of formal education until 1925 when they start giving grants and facilitating the already established schools. The system of education in Uganda has a structure of 7yaers of primary education, 6 years of secondary and 3-5years post secondary education. Secondary education was prioritized in the 1960s, with the aim of turning out the highly educated people necessary to govern and develop the country.
