Education Ministry Decries Low Form One Turnout In Schools.According to Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, a low turnout of Form One students who were supposed to report to secondary schools this week has occurred.Speaking to the press at Kisumu Girls High School on Saturday, CS Magoha emphasized that the government, through his ministry, will identify and ensure that students who have yet to report to their designated secondary schools do so.Magoha believes that the low turnout is due to parents keeping their children at home in the hope of finding alternative school placements for them.“I think that the reporting in school is still very low and I have a feeling that some people still think that they are going to change schools and I am going to give firm instructions to school heads that the issue of changing school should stop,” said the CS.He went on to say that, regardless of the institutions to which Class 8 leavers are assigned, all schools in the country are equally funded, so parents should have no concerns about their children receiving the best education possible.“Children should go to schools where they are placed unless there are special circumstances. Like maybe medical…that we can permit. Every Kenyan school is well-funded, every child is funded at the same level,” he said.“What will determine the child’s performance is the child’s self drive and discipline so stop keeping the children at home because you think they are going to be taken to another school. That is not going to happen."He also urged well-wishers to sponsor students who might not otherwise be able to pursue secondary education, while encouraging less fortunate parents to send their children to school regardless of whether they have school fees or not."Forget about all the politics we are hearing we must empower the poor to also break the ceiling. Let all children come to school and we will ensure that they are well received. To the parents who don’t have enough money send your child with the little that you have as you look for the rest,” Magoha said.Education Ministry Decries Low Form One Turnout In Schools
