Teachers Want Law-Based Rules In Schools To Curb Student Indiscipline

Teachers Want Law-Based Rules In Schools To Curb Student Indiscipline.
To address indiscipline in schools, principals want the government to develop rules based on the law.
Kahi Indimuli, chairman of the Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (Kessha), stated yesterday that there is currently no law that holds students accountable for their actions.
He contends that students are not held accountable for their actions in school.
“We must not only talk about the rights of the children, but we must equally talk about the responsibility of the students,” he said.
“They break up things, burn schools and later walk free because we have no law which makes them responsible for their deeds,” said Mr Indimuli.
He noted that Children’s Act should be synchronized with school guidelines dealing with student indiscipline to ensure that punishment given to such students is guided by law.
"If the learners are found culpable, they need to be sanctioned and asked to pay so that we do not hold all learners in a school responsible for a destruction that may have been hatched and executed by only a few people,” Said Indimuli.
He claims that in most cases, the Children’s Act is used to punish teachers who are found to be in the wrong, but children get away with nothing.
The chairman also urged parents to discipline their children rather than relying solely on teachers.
“Parents like blaming teachers over indiscipline but they are equally to blame,” Mr Indimuli noted.
Last year, he said, principals faced a high number of indiscipline cases. More than 35 schools were set ablaze, forcing the government to temporarily close them.
“We have a challenge with how the Act is being used to manage the discipline of our children in school. We have to question the responsibility of students. This will play a very central role in dealing with the issue of indiscipline among students.”

According to the Kenya Secondary School Heads Association, it has been difficult for teachers to discipline students since corporal punishment was outlawed in Kenya in 2001, which appears to be a clear indication that corporal punishment will be reinstated in schools.
