Today the cabinet secretary of the ministry of education has received mixed reactions after his latest directive. Professor George Magoha has directed all public schools to use projectors instead of printing papers. This is a move according to the CS to cut costs.
The move seeks to reduce the number of paperwork used in illustrative learning. One projector can cover a whole class while more than 45 papers will be needed for the same. This is expected to reduce the burden in schools which are grappling with financial crisis.
Kenyans across the internet have come out guns blazing at Magoha. They have asked him to consider schools in Turkana where learning is under a tree. There are no permanent buildings as classes and even electricity.
His stand on most of the educational matters has been termed as arrogant with most of Kenyans. "The minister does not listen to the wished of his juniors at most times. Him being a learned medicine professor thinks he knows it all," one Kenyan said.
