The schools are beginning their second week of their studies today.The teachers are optimist that they will clear the syllabus on time despite the lesser weeks in this year’s academic calendar.
The Government reduced the calendar from 39 weeks to 30 after the disruption by the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
Education CS Professor George Magoha has been giving instructions that have been falling on deaf years.The school head teachers have always refused to take instructions from the CS.This has seen the public blame the CS for talking more but doing less.
The school Principals have been increasing fees and ilegally sending students home contrary to the instructions.
Today,the People Daily Newspaper has revealed that the students are being sent home by the schools for school fees despite the Ministry releasing over ksh 17 billion to schools as capitation fees.
This means that for another time,the school heads have failed to follow the Directives from the ministry.What next for the tough talking CS after this revelation?
