September reopening of schools receives a major blow after new education guidelines
The education cabinet secretary Prof.George Magoha has delivered which seems like a bad news on the reopening of schools,which is set to take place on 1st September this year.
Speaking to the media today , the education Cabinet secretary revealed that the new education guidelines requires between fifteen to twenty learners per class ,which he admitted to be hard to implement .
This comes as bad news to the process of reopening schools as most of schools lack the necessary infrastructure to handle the set guidelines.
It is known that the normal class accommodates fifty learners and most of schools especially in Nairobi county and the Eastern parts of Kenya have up to hundred learners per class.
Schools , mostly from the pastoralism communities have been on the limelight about learners taking their academic lessons under a tree, despite the several promises by every government that comes to power to end the menace with no or little intervention at the end.
Citizens are now keen to see what the government shall do in order to ensure all learners go back to their schools and kept in accordance to the new ministry of Education guidelines.
The question several citizens are asking is , will the government build classes and dormitories within the two months remaining before schools resume ?
The Cs also intend that teachers will have to report back to school two weeks before the actual opening of schools to ensure all is set before learners report back.
