The Ministry of Education outlawed holiday tuition in 2008, referring to it as "jail tuition," for both private and public institutions in the nation.During the event, Professor George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, gave the order to examine all private schools to gauge their level of readiness for the Junior Secondary School (JSS) start the next year.
