Gov’t calls for concerted efforts to increase school enrolment

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has ordered National Government Administrative officers to ensure all learners join secondary schools.

He said to realise 100 per cent transition from primary to secondary schools, there was need for the administrators to trail the students and make them register in various learning institutions.

“The Chiefs, together with their assistants, should be in the forefront in ensuring that our children are enlisted in various schools with the help of police,” said Magoha arguing that every student case of not reporting to school would be looked into by the government.

He said the government is ready to offer full scholarship and bursaries to students from vulnerable households who were unable to join secondary schools countrywide.

Magoha was speaking during the inspection of Kenya Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project (SEQIP) infrastructural works at Butere Girls High School.

“Parents should not stay at home with learners. They must find a way of engaging the school heads on how to go about their predicaments,” he said.

The CS said the Government scholarship and bursaries would be offered to deserving students who are unable to join various school in the Country.

“To obtain 100 per cent transition, the administrators must ensure all 2021 KCPE students are in class throughout the year,” he said.
