Since the outbreak of the first Corona virus case in Kenya, one of the measures undertaken by the government was to close schools in order to reduce the spread of the pandemic as schools were seen as red zones because of their huge population. This measure was taken since with underdeveloped infrustructure and huge number of pupils in schools, maintaining social and physical distances would be a problem. Upto then, education sector has suffered a big blow all stakeholders lamenting about what is to be done about this. The students, teachers, non teaching staff together with parents have not have easy time digesting about the closure of schools and the economy at large as a measure of combating the spread of the deadly disease of which is said that it is here to stay with us much longer than we can imagine. Most of us view it as more suffuring being injected into the lives of human beings as with lockdowns and the rising cost of living in kenya, the common Kenyan is going to suffer more.

The question now is, is it time for Kenya to adapt online learning as the main form of learning hence forth ? The answere is yes because, after the realisation of the first case of the pandemic in kenya upto now, which is approximately 12months ago, learning among the students has been done only for three months. The rest students were at home most of them doing nothing in particular in terms of education. As much as the minister of education was emphasizing about students being taught the values and ways of their culture, i can bare witness that little was done instead, many students indulged in other unhealthy activities which as a result many started abusing drugs and rose in teenage pregnancies. In my opinion, since the pandemic is here with us and not going anytime soon, schools being the red zones where the pandenic can spread fast, it is time for E-learning to be embrased in Kenya so as our childrens future to be secured.
