Magoha Direct Schools To Recall All Students Sent Home For Fees

Magoha Direct Schools To Recall All Students Sent Home For Fees.

Prof. Magoha directed that the students be recalled to school and that learning continue uninterrupted.

This comes after reports indicated that school capitation had hit school accounts by yesterday.

“We want to ask principals to stop sending children home for school fees because the government has already released funds to schools,” said Prof Magoha.

The CS stated that the ministry had received reports of children being removed from schools in large numbers due to fee arrears, particularly in Nyandarua County.

“Those children must go back to school immediately because the money we released should have hit school bank accounts by yesterday (Monday), let us be sensitive to parents and please not send children home because the month has not ended,” said Prof Magoha.

Julius Jwan, the Principal Secretary for Basic Education, also warned schools against requesting additional levies.

According to the PS, schools must follow the ministry’s fee guidelines.

Dr. Jwan stated that the ministry has received reports of several schools across the country charging students extra fees.

“Each day we receive a lot of complaints about learners who have been sent home because either they have not brought motivation fees or lunch fees,” said Dr Jwan.

The PS warned that Ministry of Education field officers would be held accountable for any school that demanded extra levies, and he directed them to provide detailed reports on schools that violated ministry guidelines.

The majority of students also returned to school with unpaid fees, causing institutions to order items on credit from their various suppliers.

Parents have since blamed the non-payment of fees on the school’s hectic academic calendar and the country’s difficult economic situation.
