The secretary of the cabinet for education has urged school administrators against raising tuition.

Machogu said the government has not changed the amount parents should pay when addressing the nation on Monday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development's form one placement launch.

He instructed parents to simply pay the amount the government set in place in 2016.

Machogu added that each secondary school student will receive Ksh22,244 from the government while junior secondary school pupils would receive Ksh15,000.

He claimed that because of the capitation amount, there should be no tuition fees for students in day schools and grades 7.

According to Machogu, students moving up to Grade 7 will get a new uniform for the junior secondary division. He gave the school administration the authority to choose the colors and uniform styles that they saw fit.
