The Kenyan school calendar was all normal before the strike of the coronavirus. The higher learning institutions, the TVET colleges and institutes, High schools, and primary schools were much hammered by this strike.
The ministry of education in conjunction with various stakeholders had to collaborate and come up with a valid and consistent school calendar that shall favor all the levels of studies in the whole country.
The normal duration for school holidays and half-term breaks for secondary schools had to be cut off so that to stand in for the lost time during the lockdown and covid-19 break.
From various concerns raised by parents and students about school fees and poor timetabling by the ministry of education and the government in general, the ministry of education today has responded to their cry.
The ministry has announced the reduction of school fees by 8500 in national schools and 5500in public schools. This puts a smile on a peasant guardian or parent who had limited resources to fund for their children’s school fees.
Speaking during the press conference, the education cabinet secretary made it clear that the calendar shall remain as planned and no one shall compromise with it. He assured parents and learners of their safe and protected education curriculum.
