Even after the government of Kenya putting programs in place to ensure that every Kenyan kid has access to quality education through a program initiated by president uhuru Kenyatta that seeks to ensure 100% transition to secondary school, still more needs to be done. It is evident from statistics that not all school going kids manage to complete their education, this is due to degrading cultural practices and abject poverty.
The government of Kenya has been privileged to be informed of a program dubbed as Global partnership for education that seeks to ensure quality education to learners across the globe being sponsored by wealthy nations.
Speaking during a virtual meeting with Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, president Kenyatta highlighted how it is a struggle satisfying educational needs in struggling countries.
“In many parts of the world resources are becoming scarce, that is why we are working hard to raise money such that no school going kid is left behind and everyone has an opportunity to access quality education.” Said President Kenyatta.
Boris, who attended the meeting virtually from criss cross primary school in London said that there was need to incorporate wealth nations such as Britain, the Us and Japan to integrate technology in education since the changing times needs technology more.
According to lead experts in Kenya, the new program is set to ensure that all students report to school even if lack of enough class rooms is a big challenge. Experts attributed this challenge to the mass number of learners being transitioned to secondary schools as a result of the government’s program to ensure 100% transition of primary school kids to secondary schools.
“Our secondary schools must be spacious to accommodate all students. The government must also prepare to receive four million learners between now and 2024,” Emmanuel Manyasa, an educational expert continued saying that; “It is high time for the government to consider teaching skills and values.”
