Government Push For 100pc Secondary Enrolment

Local Administrators Urged To Report Teenage Pregnancies And School Drop-Out.

To ensure that every child receives the full benefits of secondary school education, the government is committed to ensuring a 100% transition of students from primary to secondary schools.

After meeting with more than 200 local administrators from Mwingi’s seven Sub-counties in Mwingi Central, Eastern Regional Commissioner Evans Achoki directed them to ensure that government policies are felt positively at the grassroots.

He directed them to make certain that no child remained at home after completing primary school.

“You are government eyes and ears on the grassroots level, the government is keen in making sure 100 per cent secondary school transition happens and hence you must ensure that is possible in your administrative area,” said Achoki.

Achoki informed the administrators that the Kenyan Constitution recognizes the need for basic education for all children under the Bill of Rights, and that it is thus the responsibility of local government administrators to ensure that every child receives basic education.

The Education Act of 2013 requires any parent who is a Kenyan or whose child resides in the country to enroll their child in primary and secondary school.

Kenya introduced and adopted a policy on Universal Access to Basic Education in 2018. The policy aims to ensure that all children enroll in primary schools and complete secondary school, with a 100% transition rate.

Achoki requested that local administrators encourage students to enroll in vocational training colleges, as these institutions provide skills for global competitiveness.
