Parents’ fears regarding private schools’ willingness to welcome the first batch of Grade Seven graduates as boarders in junior secondary schools were allayed by Magoha, who spoke to the media at the Moi Educational Centre.

He said that parents did not need to transfer their children to various schools, and that the competition should be reserved for when they apply to Grace 10 senior high schools.

“It’s vital for parents who already have their children enrolled in private schools to keep them enrolled in junior secondary facilities built inside those institutions,” he added, “so that the ruthless rivalry that comes after year eight is postponed till Year 10.”

“It’s only one extra year,” Magoha stated, “so when they start competing for senior school now, they’ll be a bit older than normal.”

Magoha also questioned whether the CBC meant that students began secondary school at a young age and that instructors were unprepared to deal with them. According to him, some secondary schools in the 8-4-4 system have admitted children as young as 12 years old.

“Who’s to claim our educators aren’t well-educated? We’ve had 12-year-olds previously, and we still have them today. I’m a doctor, and I don’t think there’s much of a difference between a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old in terms of behavior; in fact, they behave better “He was ecstatic.

A diploma cannot be given to you by a court. I double-checked a lot of degrees as a Vice-Chancellor, and it only takes a phone call if you set politics aside.” He was making a point.

 

The forthright CS went on to warn that the situation was sending the wrong message to children, with the necessity motivating even those engaged in politics to go to whatever length to obtain the academic certificate.

 

“You don’t have to go to university to think.” Do you feel that those with degrees are the only ones who are intelligent? That isn’t the case at all! “He made a statement. This has encouraged everyone else to try to acquire a degree in whichever manner they can.”

 

He warned politicians that no court would grant them degrees and that colleges have the authority to check degrees. The procedure of certifying academic credentials, according to the CS, should be simple but is only complicated by politics.
