Bad News To Parents And Schools As The Government Comes Up With This On CBC

Just two weeks before the reopening of schools for term one of 2023 academic year, parents remain in dilemma over the future of their grade six students who sat for their national exams. The government has been releasing new conditions for these students who are to join Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) when the schools reopen. Schools have also been left in dilemma over the future of these students. In its recent move, the government has announced that not all schools will handle JSS learners.

According to the government, the only those schools that will meet conditions for JSS will be able to continue with it. The schools with laboratory, running water, field, minimum of 40 students, 50% that is the minimum score schools should attain are among the conditions for schools to continue with JSS. If the schools does not meet all these, parents will be forced to transfer their students to neighbouring schools that meet the requirements. Transferring of students won't be an easy task to parents as they have also been requested to buy a new set of uniforms for the learners joining JSS.
