KUPPET Chastise Magoha For Causing Confusion Over School’s Re-Opening

KUPPET Chastise Magoha For Causing Confusion Over School’s Re-Opening.

Akelo Misori, secretary general of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers, questioned Magoha’s decision-making process, claiming that the decisions have caused confusion.

‘‘We have had an unpredictable CS and this shows how he has failed the education sector. These sporadic circulars have caused a lot of anxiety and disruption since no parent or teacher can plan,’’ Misori said.

According to Misori, all stakeholders look to the government for proper planning, but the government’s hasty decision to close learning institutions last week was unwise.

“‘This is a sad state of affairs, given the immense financial and logistical factors involved in the re-opening of schools. To remedy the situation, the CS must issue a statement on the comprehensive term dates for schools for the rest of the year.’’

Misori stated that the education sector is concerned that Magoha will change the opening date again.

‘‘Given the unpredictability of the changes, stakeholders are uncertain whether the Minister will adhere to the new date since the election programme is still unfolding.

“Schools, parents, and learners find it hard to make plans based on the latest announcement,” he said.

The CS issued a similar communication three days ago, suspending school re-opening on August 11 and moving it to Monday, August 15.

Teachers in schools are debating whether there will be enough time to cover the curriculum after missing two weeks due to elections.

Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association chair Kahi Idimuli stated that preparing this year’s candidates for the exams is a challenge.

“We have a limited time to prepare the candidates, so closing schools for more than a week will have an impact on the calendar,” Indimuli explained.

Evans Ngadi, a teacher at Gatoto Primary School in Nairobi, believes schools will need to implement special learning schedules to make up for the lost time.
