How Junior Secondary Students will be Funded by the Kenya Kwanza Administation

To enable free junior secondary education in public schools, the government will contribute Sh15,000 each learner as capitation.

At addition, the government advises that junior secondary students to wear different school uniform to set them apart from the rest of the students in the lower tier.

Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, issued a warning to school administrators not to impose any fees on junior secondary students. He also threatened harsh disciplinary action in such cases.

In order to support free education in all public schools, President William Ruto has ordered the National Treasury to set aside Sh15,000 per student as capitation. The government will spend a total of Sh9.6 billion on students in junior high and secondary schools this fiscal year.

It follows that no school should charge students in Grade 7 any fees unless they have residential facilities. The 100% transfer policy in the same school where the learners were enrolled in Grade Six prohibits public schools from charging any admission fee for any Grade Seven learner.
