The Education Ministry has provided Ksh9.3 billion to pay the free education program, a move that has averted a crisis in the wake of school principals' outrage over budget limits.
Headteachers have lamented the school's financial predicament, arguing that the government should issue additional capitation monies to keep the institution going.
In the recent past, the Education Ministry has been at odds with both headteachers and parents.
Parents recently expressed dissatisfaction with the school calendar's midterm break, claiming that the brief vacation was unnecessary because schools would shut two weeks later on Friday, July 16.
Due to the difficulties created by the Covid-19 pandemic, which saw schools close, the ministry modified the calendar.
