Junior Secondary To Get More Funding Than Primary and Secondary Schools

Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu said on Monday that the government will give more money to junior secondary schools (JSS) than to primary and high schools.

This is to help schools all over the country start new academic programs.He, however, did not clarify how much JSS will get.

Mr Machogu said, “The Ministry of Education will employ 36,000 teachers countrywide to support the new educational agenda. This is the highest number ever employed at once by the government of Kenya.”

“We are aware of lack of staffing in our public schools. We have levels seven, eight and nine, and they will continue in their respective schools with increased funding to enhance their academic success.”

Mr. Machogu mentioned in Kisii, following a meeting with high school principals from Kisii and Nyamira to discuss academic standards in the two counties, that news reports from the counties’ local stations primarily focus on declining academic performance, but leaders will work to improve education standards.

He said Elected leaders should be at the forefront of problem-solving. “As CS for Education, I am available to support the endeavours to uplift the Kisii community’s dwindling standards,” he added.

The CS disclosed that the implementation phase of the resolutions from the meeting will take place with immediate effect.

“I have information that students from Kisii and Nyamira counties did well and there were no reported incidents of cheating. 

“The KCSE examination results will be released before the end of January and the outcome will be a reflection of how the students performed—no cheating incidents.”

He disclosed that he would prefer to concentrate his efforts on raising education levels across the nation.

“There is nothing so special to people than when a child performs well and proceeds to join university. 

“Even a widow who is never respected in the village is glorified and made a heroin when her child joins university,” he said.
