Parents To take Care as Cs Prof Magoha Expresses His Anger.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has blamed the parents over what he refered to ‘poor bringing' of children in society.

He related this to poor parenting skills. According to Magoha, this is the reason behind the increased cases of substance and alcohol abuse among learners.

Speaking on Friday, Magoha said that it's the responsibility of the parents to help the ministry of education reduce the effects of drug abuse among the learners.

“A child will do what they see their parents doing not what they say. Parents must own up to the fact that they are responsible for what is happening to the children,” Magoha remarked.

According to the study conducted in 2019, the results showed that adults play a major role in influencing drug abuse among the school children.

Majority of the pupils interviewed disclosed that they get drugs from kiosks, shops and bars near their schools. All these mentioned sources are owned by the parents. Some learners even admitted that some school workers who are parents sometimes give them drugs.

What remains unknown is the action to be taken against these parents. Therefore, before the ministry makes a step to look for these drug dealers i would advise whoever is responsible to stop this habit. You are interfering with the future of these learners.
