Good News to Parents as Government Makes the Following Announcement

All heads of schools have been told by the education ministry to accept all students in junior high and high school, particularly those without school uniforms. In the report provided by CS Ezekiel Machogu on Monday, March 6, 2023, it is stated that students in grade seven should not be at home because they do not have a school uniform. Additionally, he gave chiefs and sub-chiefs the task of locating junior high school students who had not yet enrolled in their various institutions.

For those guardians who were unable to pay for the school outfits, this revelation is a relief. In December 2022, the sub-county education director and the heads of institutions at junior secondary schools received permission to choose the school uniforms in collaboration with the relevant stakeholders and partners.

According to the earlier story, the attire would also have additional distinctive characteristics for rebranding and institution identification. As a result, the outfits should also honor the cultural and religious values of different communities.

Unsettlingly, the minister of education also imposed the requirement that all parents buy uniforms for their children. Importantly, the Ministry of Education confirms that students may continue to attend class in their old outfits.

As a result, the government decided that students switching to junior high schools could still wear their former school's uniform. The minister of education came to this agreement on Tuesday, February 28, at State House Nairobi, at the direction of President William Ruto. No longer should students be dismissed for not wearing the new attire.

Cabinet took into account the developments in the competency-based curriculum's adoption in junior secondary education.

It is not a uniform problem that keeps kids out of school. There should be no seventh-grade students who lack attire at home. As a result, the leader of instruction should accommodate all students and allow parents enough time to buy items for their junior-senior-level students.
