Primary and High School Students to Stay in Class For Only 6 Hours in New Directive

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu has called on headteachers to ensure studies in primary and secondary schools run for a maximum of six hours only during weekdays.

Machogu said that teaching should start from 8:00 am to 3:45 pm. He said that learners’ education should be natural and not forced.

“Finland has a 3-hour teaching regime yet it is reputed to have a world-class system of education. Schools need to adhere to the school hours which allows learners to manage learning and engage in physical education activities,” Machogu said.

The CS spoke on Thursday in a meeting with Kenya Secondary School Heads Association chairman Indimuli Kahi at his Office in Jogoo House.

He thanked KESSHA for the support it was giving the government in the management of education and in particular, the education reform the government is undertaking.

Kahi raised various issues he wants the Ministry to address to make it easier for principals to manage secondary schools.

Capitation funds for free day secondary education programmes, school uniforms, disbursement of curriculum materials, management of co-curricular activities and auditing of school finances are some of the issues the association wants the ministry to address.

Machogu said that the ministry will set up a team to study the issues and provide solutions to them.

However, he asked the association to submit proposals on possible ways of addressing the issues.

Basic Education PS Belio Kipsang also challenged the leadership of KESSHA to regulate the cost of school uniforms among its members.

Other leaders present during the meeting were senior officials in the Ministry and the executive officials of KESSHA.
