Sudden Twist of Events as Government Announces Major Changes on CBC

The government has divulged that Junior High School education will only be undertaken in the distinguished Kenyans Days Schools dotted across the country and not in Boarding Schools. The statement has been made by the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Vocational Training. The Minister of Education, Isaac Ruto, made the announcement on Tuesday in Nairobi. He said that the government had decided to drop the policy of sending secondary school students to board schools because of the huge cost involved.

The decision to drop the policy of sending students to board schools was reached at the recent meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Education held at State House, Nairobi. The minister said that the meeting which was presided over by the President, Uhuru Kenyatta, gave the go-ahead for the government to put in place the policy of boarding school education to ensure that all Kenyans have access to quality education. The minister said that the government will build and renovate Kenyans’ days schools to board level and provide basic amenities such as laboratories, dormitories, play grounds, football courts, basketball courts and other such facilities. He said that the government will engage the private sector to build, renovate and manage the boarding schools

The Minister said that the move would improve the standards of education in the country because of the better learning environment that would be offered in the distinguished Kenyans days schools. “We have decided to drop the policy of sending secondary school students to board schools because of the huge cost involved,” said Mr. Ruto. He said that the government had realised the importance of improving the standards of education in the country so that the nation could realise its full potential. He said that the government had therefore embarked upon a massive campaign to improve the standards of education in the country.
