The purpose of the study was to establish whether secondary schools in Uganda are prepared for effective teaching of ICT education. The study was carried out in six secondary schools in Uganda. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods with a descriptive cross sectional survey design were adapted to collect data from 96 respondents. Questionnaires and interviews were employed as data collection instruments. The study findings showed that, the introduction of ICT education as a subject in the secondary school curriculum is a good government’s policy that will bring in every secondary school graduate to the use of internet, world of employment creativity, knowledge and use of internet and other related technologies for national development. The findings further revealed that success of the ICT education policy will depend on governments’ effort to recruit well qualified teachers in the subject, supply of enough computers, and construction of adequate computer laboratories and libraries in all secondary schools and availability of a reliable power supply in the country.
