Parents are urging Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha to revisit his plan as schools reopen on Monday, May 10 on a new directive for Grade Four and 2020 KCPE, KCSE candidates.

Parents and the guardians lamented that the students would be affected by the three months holiday granted by Magoha as others resume classes.

Grade Four students who will be joining Grade Five and the 2020 KCPE candidates expected to join Form One will report to school on July 26 when the 2021 calendar commences. KCSE candidates will also join universities, colleges, and (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) TVETs in the same month.

“Many parents have brought this concern to my attention and it’s fair that we must get a win-win situation for parents, teachers, and the government,” A guardian said

National Parents Association Chairman, Nicholas Maiyo added that this is a stakeholders’ engagement, and they shall explore best ways of engaging the children and they will push for a meeting with the government to discuss how to keep the children active.

Resumption of learning for Grade Four students had been defied by several private schools on the new directive issued by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.

Some parents, however, voiced opposition to Grade Four students being recalled to school, saying that private schools were exploiting the students. They urged the institutions to adhere to Magoha’s directives.

“We were not consulted, and it elicited a lot of concerns with some parents supporting the school while some of us are opposed,” a guardian stated on Thursday, May 6.

Last month, the Ministry of Education directed the students to stay at home to allow other grades to complete their third term as well as maintain the social distance policy issued by the Ministry of Health.

Grade Four, along with Grade eight and Form four candidates, completed their syllabus last term during the first phase of reopening.

Parents faulted the private schools for the move citing that they were not consulted. They noted that the schools ought to follow the clear guidelines stipulated by the education ministry.
