Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu said on Monday that the government has capped the school fees for national schools at Sh53,554 and county schools at Sh40,555,
Machogu praised Ruto for spearheading the administration of the examinations which he termed a success.
He also acknowledged the milestones that had been achieved in recent years given that the government was phasing out the national examinations
He spoke at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) during the briefing to announce Form 1 selection, where he also revealed that Form Ones will begin reporting to school between February 6 and 13.
The Education CS assured parents that all the learners will proceed to Form One in line with the government’s 100 per cent transition policy.
He added that all candidates in the November KCPE exams have been placed in secondary schools, as the government seeks to ensure 100 percent transition from primary to secondary school.
