The Ministry of Education under the Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, has given new directions to headteachers on how to engage with students on personal level to curb the rising cases of indiscipline in schools.

The Education Permanent Permanent Secretary, Julius Jwan wants the directives to be implemented immediately when school resumed for the second term starting Tuesday, October 12 to December 23.
The PS hopes that the Ministry in coordination with parents and school heads would aid in reducing indiscipline cases through a democratic approach rather than threatening students with punishments and expansions.

"We want the school heads to listen to their student's problems because there are many indiscipline cases which must be contained," said Jwan.
This comes after after so many indiscipline cases have been reported in schools in the last few months. Some of those cases including but not limited to students selling bhang sticks and other drugs in school compounds.
