Ministry Reduces Principals’ Powers Over Sale of Form One Slots.On Thursday, May 4, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha proposed limiting the powers of school principals in form one admission over the sale of slots of students who fail to report to their respective institutions.Dr Julius Jwan, Principal Secretary of Basic Education, stated in a circular to school heads that the ministry will have the final say on declaring the end of the admissions process.This means that students will have more leeway in reporting to school after May 10, the final reporting date, in accordance with the government’s policy of 100% for a smooth transition.“Because of the 100 per cent transition, schools shall not replace any student who fails to turn up until the Cabinet Secretary – Ministry of Education declares the exercise over,” read the letter in part.Magoha emphasized in particular that students who were recipients of the state’s Elimu Scholarships should have their seats reserved until they reported to school.PS Jwan also directed that school heads submit daily admissions reports to the County Directors of Education using a template provided by the ministry. This information must also be uploaded to the education database.“The details of the students who have reported should be uploaded in the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS) portal,” the statement by the PS reiterated.On May 4, Magoha directed that no school should turn away any student because of infrastructure, in response to concerns raised by administrators about school capacity ahead of Form One admission.“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,” the Education boss noted.He also urged school administrators to allow needy students to arrive at school without school uniforms. Some of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms had to be converted into hostels, according to school administrators.Also Read:The 2021 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education was taken by 1.2 million candidates (KCPE).
