Opinion: Universities, colleges and TVET institutions should remain open

Since last year March the government closed all schools including high institutions for 10 months which disrupted the school calendar. This has made programmes in universities and colleges not to run smoothly. All exams were postponed the situation which forced the students to remain in the year they were.

Now that the form four results were announced and many candidates got an entry grade to the universities, the government should allow those students in their last year in universities, colleges and TVET institutions to sit for their final exams.

After they are done this shall pave way for the students who did KCSE 2020 to have vacancies in those institutions. Even though some universities were offering online classes, not all students were able to access those online classes that were being taught.

Most of the students were unable to attend those classes due to poor network at their home and insufficient money to buy data bundles. Also technology in Kenya has not been well established whereby all learners are able to access online classes while at home.

The government should ensure universities remain open since when they were closed many students dropped out of school. Others viewed it as a waste of time considering they keep on repeating on the same semester. Universities, colleges and TVET students should be given a chance to learn smoothly as the directors in these institutions are preparing a new calendar for these institutions so that intake for 2020 candidates can begin.
