We need a national conversation on our boarding schools, there is a need to ask ourselves if truly boarding schools are important for us.

Why are we disadvantaging our day schools, and they are doing well, every county should have at least schools which our students can go there to learn and go home daily,” Muchiri said.

Muchiri took blamed schools administrations for not creating a good channel that will facilitate students’ to air their grievances well to prevent the destruction of property in schools.

 

“Among the factors influencing this bad behaviour by students in schools is a failure by teachers who have not been trained on how to manage students at school and also poor parenting,” Muchiri noted.

 

The legislator maintained that abolishing of boarding schools will ensure parents have enough time with their children to give them moral guidance as teachers guide them academically.

 

 

Call to abolish boarding schools have also been raised by the kenya national union of post primary education teachers, KUPPET and the kenya national union of teachers, KNUT, among other stake holders.

 

Last year, the cabinet secretary for education, George Magoha hinted at phased closure of boarding schools. Existence of boarding schools and long term durations have been given as the reasons for increased unrest in schools.

 

A section of teachers however feel that poor teacher remuneration and empowerment is the main course of these unrests. Revealing that even day schools, though not experiencing arson cases, have even worse discipline cases compared to boarding schools, the teachers blame the government for thinking that arson is the only indiscipline case in schools.
