Corona virus pandemic has brought a lot of challenges not only to Kenya but also the entire world has been affected. As Kenya continue to fight with the third wave of this deadly virus, an improvement has been witnessed in the number of infections that have been reported by the ministry of health for the past one week. The number shows that there is a reduction in positivity rate which implies that the president is likely to uplift some of the measures that were put in place to control the spread of this pandemic.
With only two weeks to school reopening, parents are eager to get good news from education ministry as to whether their children will be allowed to report back to school or not. The academic calendar seems to have really changed and people were hoping that comes 2023, the Kenya's Education system calendar would have gone back to its original state.
Therefore in my own opinion, I think it is necessary for the government to allow primary and secondary schools to be opened as scheduled so as not to interfere with the ongoing new academic calendar. This should be done in an organized manner by ensuring that health protocols are followed.
However, I suggest that universities should remain closed until when the curve would have been flattened. This is because these are advanced institutions that are capable of organizing for online lectures and even exams. And also due to their high population, the issue of social distancing will be a major if allowed for face to face learning.
Do you think this is a good idea? Or all schools should just be allowed to open
