Sh19.9 Billion Released For Free Primary And Secondary Education

Sh19.9 Billion Released For Free Primary And Secondary Education.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has warned principals not to send way students with fees when schools reopen in two weeks.
He stated that Sh19.9 billion has been released to schools to cover free primary and secondary education.
Magoha stated that with this money, principals should not turn away children when they arrive at school.
Magoha stated that Sh2 billion of the Sh19.9 billion allocated to capitation will go to free primary schools. A total of Sh16.8 billion will be allocated to free secondary schools.
“The money will be in banks on Tuesday next week before the schools open. Nobody should send children away because there is no money to run the school,” Magoha said.
He was speaking at Pangani Girls, during the launched the Elimu and Wings to Fly scholarships for needy students. There were 2,413 beneficiaries in the audience.
Early Learning and Basic Education PS Julius Jwan took time to explain how previlaged the beneficiaries are comparing to his days back in school.
“I had never owned a pair of shoes throughout primary school and I only learned that people are supposed to wear good shoes when going to Form 1,“ he said.
Those canvas shoes were still too small and uncomfortable to wear. He was in pain in his feet and legs, which made studying difficult.
The school tried slippers or sandals as an alternative, but they also didn’t fit well.
“When you have never won shoes and then you wear small ones, they pinch your toes until your entire body starts aching,” the PS said.
“When I got to school I was allowed to wear slippers that were only reaching half of my foot. But that didn’t stop me from being where we are today,” he told the scholarship recipients.
Despite his discomfort, Jwan was able to achieve his aspirations.
PS Jwan has a doctorate in Educational Leadership and Management as well as a master’s degree in Educational Research Methods. He received both degrees from the United Kingdom.
He has a master’s degree in philosophy in Education Management from Norway, as well as a master’s degree in Linguistics from Moi University, where he also earned a bachelor’s degree in education.
Jwan can now afford hand-tooled Italian leather if he so desires. We know the shoe fits, and he’s come a long way from slippers and rubbers.
