Parents Close Two Schools After Massive failure

  • Irate parents from Busia County have shut down two schools after they exhibited poor performance in the national examinations.

    Speaking to KBC, a section of the parents noted that both Alomodoi and Nanderema primary schools’ performance had gone on a downward spiral in the past years.

    “The results of this school have been on a downward spiral since the headteacher and his deputy joined.

    “We urge the Ministry of Education to intervene in this dire situation,” one parent from Nanderema primary school noted.

    The case was similar to Alomodoi school where the parents faulted the school’s management over the performance which was below par. 

    “The problem with the school is the issue of management as the school’s resources are constantly mismanaged,” a parent from Alomodoi school noted.

    The parents urged the Education Ministry to intervene and assist the affected schools in order to reclaim their lost glory.

    The news comes as Education CS George Magoha on Monday, May 10, noted that there was a rise in performance in the 2020 KCSE results as opposed to its performance the previous year.

    He noted that the performance had improved despite the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic which led to a nine-month hiatus for schools.

    Magoha assured all students that they would successfully transition into universities and TVET institutions as promised by the government.

    He added that this would equip them with the skills needed to shape their future.

    “All students deserve a place in our education system,” Magoha stated.
