So the devil dwells in high schools? No he dwells in the hearts of those who believe not in Him He who was sacrificed in Calvary. But what is in our high schools is ignorance and lack of wisdom among the so called leaders and the school administration as a whole. No parent, teacher, Belio or Amina will or can boldly say “SOME SECONDARY SCHOOLS’ PRINCIPALS AND THEIR DEPUTIES LACK LEADERSHIP” only a student can say; that is in cases same to what happened at Maranda High School, Ambira High School, Ng’iya Girls, Maliera Boys Sec School, Kisumu Girls High School. Instead most of them are tyrants.
Therefore what Mr. Belio Kipsang and other people of ranks are saying is not and will never be right nor will their recommendations bring any radical change in the sector. By the way, are they given allowances when visiting the schools or when talking to the press of the same issue do they spend? I don’t know but if all this is happening then it is a total wastage of resources. I even heard there used to exist a committee of experts who were researching of the issue. What did they recommend? Were the recommendations adhered to?
The government investigators through Mr. Belio Kipsang have already blamed the current wave on examinations something that is not true and will never be true; “WE DON’T FEAR EXAMINATIONS”. Even their recommendations are not realistic. For instance, how will county commissioners stop the unrests? Do they know that the commissioners and their boys always stop the unrest on the material day and thereafter the institution is closed? Does the government know that the police only injure the rampage participants but do not have any solution? Even jailing the suspects won’t help either. All that I think will help is implementing all positive recommendations that are learner friendly. Yes get it right from a learner ‘Implement all positive recommendations that are Learner Friendly.’
Also, some board members and teachers are also involved in developing animosity towards some department in the school setup. For instance the case of what happened at ChaldiHigh School Marsabit (Beating Teachers), we should not be blaming the implementers instead the government should use all its intelligence tools to get the rowdy board members and any teacher who might have been involved in planning the incident. As a student I agree such case is criminal and should not be treated with the same urgency as this other cases of torching and stoning school infrastructure.
Torching and stoning school infrastructure (our case) is brought about by the negatively implemented and provision of life basics in our institutions. The truth is some high schools are not worthy to contain a 21st Century boy or girl. Imagine being fed like pigs, sleeping late in bedbug infested bed, waking up early… adding up to this I have no right of saying this or that. No person is and affords a discussion with the Mr. Prince or his deputy. So how do you expect us to channel our views? How do you expect us to communicate?
Note: All that the 21st century students need is; room for communication; yes give us ear and take our recommendations seriously, provide us with physical life comforts, tenderly advise usand if it goes well with you buy us a discussion table and be there for discussions … all this will bring understanding and mutual agreement even when we disagree.
