More ECDE Teachers To Be Hired In Garissa County.
To strengthen early education, the Garissa government plans to hire more ECDE teachers and construct classrooms. County secretary Abdi Ali stated that a solid foundation is essential for the youth.
Abdi made the remarks while opening a public financial management seminar in Garissa on Wednesday. He stated that they want to start over now that ECDE is part of the new curriculum.
“That is why we want to employ the teachers on a permanent basis to boost their morale,” Abdi said.
According to the county secretary, teachers play an important role in the development of children by nurturing and moulding them for a better future.
Abdi also stated that youth should attend tertiary institutions because the country is in need of people with such skills.
“As a county, we have pumped in a substantial amount of funds to improve on the infrastructure as well equip these institutions,” he said.

Some have criticized Governor Ali Korane’s administration for doing little to improve the quality of learning at the lower levels. He is accused of failing to hire teachers and of failing to build more infrastructure.
Abdi, on the other hand, stated that over the last four years, the county has been consistent in hiring ECDE teachers and putting up structures in areas where they were lacking.
“The Garissa government remains committed in addressing the plight of teachers, stabilising early learning and setting a strong base for our children,” he said.
Last month, the county signed an agreement with the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development to develop an ECDE curriculum.
According to Abdi, with the new partnership, students can look forward to a bright future because they will have everything they need in their day-to-day learning.
