Schools are opening for their first term on 26th this month of July. School calendar was affected by Covid 19 pandemic which made learners to miss classes. Instead of declaring the 2020 education calendar null and void, the government in conjunction with relevant stakeholders agree to compress the calendar to ensure an entire year is not wasted.
The government of Kenya launched a free primary and secondary education. In primary schools, learning is completely free. In second schools learners are only required to pay for their lunch. However, for the boarding secondary schools, the government is giving Sh22,422 to cater for lunch and boarding services.
According to reports in the public domain, teachers have hiked fees as schools set to start a new academic year. "I have already received news of some primary schools requesting Sh11,000 as school fees and I wonder what it is meant to be. I have disbursed my team to look into that and those found culpable will face the charge.” Professor Mogoha said.
