~lack of enough infrastructures and piece of land.

 

He also added that the authority of registering schools will be solely taken back to Ministry of education with individual selected stakeholders given the major role to  play in registration.

 

According to the statements made by the Cabinet secretary of Education prof. Magoha, the schools that will be having their playing fields at the Neighborhood  will be exempted from this crackdown.

 

During the year 2019, thousands of learners were made to look for new schools when their respective schools were closed . This was because the  Ministry of Education had given directive of closure of all schools  which were operating without legal registration.

 

For this year- 2021, schools operating by employing teachers who are not registered by Teacher Service Commission(TSC) ,schools with structures that do not make  the learners learning environmentuse friendly and having more learners enrolled without any approval will be experiencing this closure crackdown by making their current license invalid.

 

 

In his statement, he outlined that all these schools will be closed down and begin a fresh registration exercise by following legal procedures. This has left parents and learners wondering what will befall them interms of their education.
