Magoha Warns Schools Heads Despite Concerns.Prof George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has issued a tough directive to all high schools, as the country prepares to record its highest form one admission.Magoha told the press on Wednesday, May 4, that no school should turn away a student because of a lack of infrastructure.His remarks come as headteachers lament the lack of space in their institutions, with boarding schools bearing the brunt of the burden.He also stated that, as this is his final year at the helm of the ministry, he is determined to see that the country finally achieves a 100% transition rate.“My orders are to deliver 100 per cent transition. This is actually the fourth year we are going to deliver it. Because it is my last time, you can be sure I will deliver it with more energy."The child is a Government child. Who are you to start saying that there is no space in the school? If there is no space, do you think we are unable to create space,” stated Magoha.The CS also came to the aid of students from low-income families, directing that they not be turned away for failing to wear school uniforms.This directive has compelled some schools to devise creative solutions to ensure that all students have a bed as well as a desk in the classroom.Kenya High School, which usually has six streams, added a seventh after a large number of students applied for admission.Some schools, such as Kisumu Girls High School, were forced to convert newly constructed Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms into dormitories.“This is a boarding school, what we don’t have is the dormitory. We are going to create some alternative room where the students will stay,” a staffer from the school told the press.ALSO READ:Form one admission closes on Tuesday, May 10, with the Ministry of Education hoping to enroll over a million students.
