Why Kenyan Candidates May Take Long Before Begining Their Next Levels Of Learning

Covid-19 has been a big blow to the Kenyan education system. In the previous year when corona virus first hit the country, the government suspended all learning activities. This made learners stay home for a long period and it greatly interfered with the academic calendar.

The ministry of education had to find ways of getting learners back to school. They laid down guidelines that were to be followed by all institutions to keep all learners safe from the spread of Covid-19. The government agreed on reopening schools in phases, giving candidates the first priority to resume their studies. According to the new academic calendar put in play by the ministry of Education, all candidates were allowed to report back to school in November, giving them adequate time to complete their syllabus and sit for the the national examination in March 2021. Other learners resumed their studies in 4th January 2021.

The country was hit by the third phase of the corona virus. This forced the president to release new measures of fighting the spread of the virus. The education system happened to affected once again by the new measures. All learning activities were suspended and only candidates were allowed to stay in schools to complete their national examination.

With the new Covid-19 measures in play, learners will be forced to stay home for unknown duration before joining their next levels of education which they had hoped to join soon enough. The ministry of Education may also be forced to draft a new academic calendar if the situation worsens.
