Help Us, Magoha Pleads with Private Schools On Junior Secondary Schools
Magoha has maintained that the government relies on the positive response of the private sector for a smooth rollout CBC, amid claims that the education sector is likely to be in a crisis in January.
The cs reported that for a smooth transition, schools require adequate classrooms. Alongside the 10,000 classrooms constructed by the government in public schools, private schools will provide 5,000.
“The government is not interested in public schools alone. There is no child who is for public or private school. All we want is a smooth transition,” Prof Magoha said.
Speaking at Kodero Bara Secondary School in Migori County after a routine inspection of junior secondary classes, Magoha said the government was almost reaching its target in the classrooms programme. The government hopes that all the 1.28 million registered grade six learners will join junior secondary schools.
He told Kenyans to refrain from politicizing the education system, revealing that the state is committed to addressing gaps in CBC, including ensuring provision of adequate facilities in learning institutions countrywide.
“It is the responsibility of the government to ensure there is conducive atmosphere in learning institutions that will enable learners to achieve their dreams. We are keen in implementing that,” Magoha said.
