Early Morning Education News In The Headlines

The government sends a stun warning to students who misbehave saying they risk missing certificates of moral conduct, CS Magoha says the school calendar remains unchanged and a student goes blind in Migori among the education news making headlines this morning.

1. No Certificate of Good Conduct To Misbehaving Students, Government notifies

70 candidates at Anestar Boys High School Bahati who sneaked into girls’ school will miss certificates of moral conduct until they appease security agents that they have straightened up. This is according to Principal Secretary at the State Department of University Education and Research Simon Nabukwesi, who spoke in Nakuru yesterday.

“We shall take the appropriate measures against the students after their last paper. They will miss their certificates of good conduct until they satisfy security agencies that they have reformed,” said Amb. Nabukwesi.

It's a clear sign to the rest of the students who misbehave that the government took the incidents seriously and therefore they should stay warned.

2. Reopening Of Schools Remains Intact As CS Magoha Says Calendar Will Not Change [VIDEO]

The school schedule won't change. This is as indicated by the Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha. 

Since President Uhuru Kenyatta reported strict measures to control the spread of the Coronavirus, including locking down five regions; Nakuru, Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado and Kiambu, Kenyans have brought up issues on what the declaration would mean for the school calendar.

Talking during the opening of a test compartment in Kiambu Town, Magoha proclaimed that understudies are needed to get back to class on May 10th for the third term which will run until July."Programming for the calendar year, I am leapfrogging forward and hoping that since it looks like the pandemic is starting to flatten, there may be no need for now for me to summon the education stakeholders to look afresh at the timetable.

So the timetable remains as we had decided earlier in the year and by the grace of God, the children will come to school the time we said they should come to school." Said Magoha in a video shared by NTV Kenya.
