Ezekiel Machogu Learns That Parents Do Not Agree With The New Curriculum Fee Structure.

Parents, who are already challenged by the educational system, are now getting another another wound from the junior secondary school (JSS), as if CBC wasn't enough.

As previously reported, the government is preparing to build classrooms for incoming grade 7 students. Parents have been asked to pay an additional cost as school fees because the new system capitation may increase to reflect evolution and infrastructure improvements.

Parents seem to have expressed their concerns, and many don't want to pay any additional money at all, let alone any higher price.Parents allege that the Kenya Kwanza government offered free education for students in grade 7 during election seasons while claiming that system change would have little effect.


Initially, grade 7 pupils in public schools were not required to pay for their education because it was provided free of charge under Kibaki's presidency.Parents are unhappy and have asked the Kenya Kwanza government to honor its promises. Ezekiel Machogu and Belio Kipsang reportedly refused requests from Saturday Nation reporters to speak with them for an interview regarding the situation. Nation is the origin.
