Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) chairperson Omboko Milemba questioned the ministry of education move to give students Half-term break following unrest that has been seen in schools this term.
Speaking to citizen TV on Day Break Emuhaya Member of Parliament said half-term break is good for student but warned that it is risk if trend continues because the students will take over the management.
"The half-term break is good for the student but it is a risk if we continue with trend because students will take over the management in that if they need something to happen, they burn the school," said Omboko Milemba.
Yesterday ministry of education through principal secretary Dr Julius Jwang announced midterm break. In the circular sent to all regional and county directors of education the midterm break will commence on Friday November 19, 2021 to Tuesday November 23, 2021.
The move was meant to avert fires in school that has been witnessed since the beginning of the term. However, Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (KESSHA) chairperson Kahi Indimuli urged government to reopen interschool competition to arrest unrest in schools.
