There's a probability that learners may resume studies before the projected 1st January next year. This is according to Education CS Magoha who said that if the Covid-19 infection rate declines, he will have no other option than to reopen schools.
Speaking during his Migori County assessment tour he promised that the Ministry of Education will review the academic calendar should the curve flattens or go down adding that reopening of schools will be guided by the safety of children in schools.
Early last week the CS had said noted that reopening of schools is also affected by lack of enough capital and resources to install the Covid-19 prevention protocols. Reports from the health ministry indicates that the curve is starting to flatten.
He assured the country that the Ministry is doing all its best to make sure that learners return back to school safely by installing enough water in the institutions, providing sanitizers among other precaution measures. He said the government is in the process of issuing face masks where necessary.
Okoth Obado the Migori County governor asked Uhuru Kenyatta's administration to look into improving infrastructure in learning institutions for the safety of learners when schools reopen. He urged parents to be responsible with their children at home to avoid cases of earlier pregnancies.
