The PS incharge of the basic education in Kenya, PS Belio Kipsang has been fast tracking the process of facing out the 8-4-4 system. The pioneer class is set to have an all new junior school experience. In this regard the ministry plans to introduce an new selection criteria: under this new arrangement students joining sub- county schools will be required to commute daily. In other words, the junior high scholar will be a day scholar.
What this means is that the learners have to select schools within a commutable distance from their parents residential address.
