Lawyer Wants Form One Selection Process To Favour Students From Security Affected Areas

Lawyer Wants Form One Selection Process To Favour Students From Security Affected Areas.
The Ministry of Education is under pressure to consider special Form One selection for candidates from Baringo County’s insecure areas.
When the 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams were released last week, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha announced that Form One selection for 2022 would be completed in two weeks.
While the selection is still in progress, lawyer Fridah Lotuiya has expressed concern about the process and has requested that learners from the region be given special consideration.
Ms Lotuiya, in a letter to the Principal Secretary Ministry of Education, requested that the government conduct a mapping of all schools in the region affected by insecurity.
“Do a mapping for all the schools that were affected by the insecurity, and after such mapping, accord a special consideration to the candidates from the mapped schools when admitting them to Form One in various secondary schools,” reads the letter dated March 31, 2022.
The Ministry received the letter on April 1. Insecurity impacted schools in the Mochongoi, Makutani, and Ilchamus wards. Schools were closed as a result of the disruption, she said, and tensions were high during the examination.
Lotuiya stated that despite the unfavorable environment, some students performed exceptionally well.

She stated that using uniform admission criteria for all candidates without taking into account the prevailing circumstances at the time of the examination would be unfair and unjust.
She added that the Ministry of Education should consider a special program to fully sponsor candidates from insecure areas.
She went on to say that families had lost their livestock, breadwinners had been killed, and their children who took the exams risked missing out on opportunities due to a lack of funds.
