Education Ministry has refuted documents going round on social media asserting that there is a phased re-opening of schools for KCPE and KCSE candidates.
On the Ministry of Education social media accounts, the Ministry denounced the circulating article, which implied that candidates are re-opening schools in 25th October 2020 and settle for their national examination at the beginning of March 30, 2021.
Further, the recommendation had contended that other learners would resume learning in January next year with grades four, five and six attending lessons on Monday, Wednesday and Friday while grade seven would be attending classes from Monday to Friday. The fake report indicated that grade one to three and pre-school learners would be going to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The Ministry of Education has asked learners and parents to dismiss the said bogus announcement noting that the Ministry of Education is not considering any such idea.
The Ministry of Education has been marred with somewhat confusion, with the learning institutions re-opening dates revamping from time to time.
In the last school assessments tour by Education CS George Magoha, the Professor revealed elements of schools reopening, giving varying dates with each speech.
On September 9th, CS Magoha affirmed that the ministry's position on the reopening date remained to be on January 2021.
However, he said that the ministry may reconsider to reopen schools earlier depending on how the virus behaves. While inspecting Pwani University, Magoha blamed the media for spreading misleading information out of misinterpretations on the reopening dates making him look like a fool and one who flip flops.
