KUPPET Questions Magoha's Directive On School Opening Day

The secondary school teachers' union has spoken out against the mandate to begin classes on August 18. On Saturday, Akello Misori issued a statement as the secretary general of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers.

Misori demanded that Education CS George Magoha explain how phased resumption would affect the academic year as a whole. Misori argues that the situation can be fixed if the minister announces the remaining school year's full term dates.

In addition, the SG wondered if schools would actually open on August 18 as planned or if there might be last-minute adjustments. He went on to say that this made it difficult for "schools, parents, and learners to make arrangements based on the latest news."

In an order dated August 18th, CS Magoha instructed students to return to class. That's because voting is still going on in the current elections.

In a statement posted on Saturday, Magoha made it clear that pupils were not expected to show up to class on Monday, as had been previously announced.

This announcement states, "I thus express the government's decision on the suspension of the re-opening of all basic education institutions with effect from Monday, 15th August 2022, till Thursday, 18th August 2022."
