Lack Of Proper Guidance And Direction Costs Form One Students Their Dream schools.
The CS stated that the selection process revealed that a large number of candidates did not receive adequate guidance and direction when selecting schools.
“The scenario can be avoided if candidates are offered relevant guidance during the selection process by teachers and their parents. Relevant ministry officials must also move to have in place proper sensitisation programmes on the form one selection process,” said the CS.
Many applications were received from the following schools: Nanyuki High School, Kabianga High School, Pangani Girls, Nakuru High School, Maseno School, Alliance Girls, Butere Girls High School, Kapsabet Boys, Mang’u High School, and Moi Girls Eldoret, which is a problem,” he added.
The CS thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for directing the implementation of the 100 percent transition policy, which has made many households happy, particularly during the era of free day secondary school learning.
“This sad story of KCPE candidates missing slots in Form One has now been consigned into the annals of history, thanks to the President most noble 100 per cent transition policy,” Magoha said.
“We will continue working with the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Government to facilitate the enrollment of every child in secondary school to actualise the 100 per cent transition,” Prof Magoha said.
All 1,225,502 candidates who took the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) 2021 will continue their education in secondary schools.
During the launch of the 2021 form one selection on Monday at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha stated that all candidates will be admitted to the 9,200 public schools and that no child will be excluded from school.
