Schools will open on Tuesday next week for term two of 2021 academic year. Teachers will be working hard to ensure they complete syllabus within time bearing the fact that the academic year has reduced from previous 39 weeks to 30 weeks.
However, the issue with school fees has been a major problem in schools. Early this week, Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association KESSHA chairperson Kahi Indimuli said schools will continue to suffer if government do not send capitation funds on time. Kahi said many schools are unable to run smoothly due to financial constraints.
However it's now good news that ministry of education through cabinet secretary Prof George Magoha has promised to disburse money to schools before schools open. " School open on Tuesday next week, let me assure you that sh 17 billions required will be available before then," said Magoha.
Education cabinet secretary also said government is working around the clock to improve, maintain and expand infrastructure in schools.
"The ministry has been marking regular intervention through funds under the Free Secondary Education capitation to enable schools maintain, improve and expand infrastructure," he added.
