With the results of this year’s Kenya National Examination Council KCPE exams coming way earlier than expected, Uhuru’s government has introduced a raft of measures to ensure that the Kenyan student achieves the planned 100 percent transition.
Education CS, Prof. Joseph Magoha stated that President Uhuru Kenyatta has provided scholarships to learners who sat their examinations in the arid and semi-arid parts of the country. This is to ensure that none of the struggling students remains outside the classroom due to school fees arrears.
In this year’s national examinations, the Education CS confirmed that no student was going to miss a chance come December 17th, after it was found that no one failed the examinations. School selection process will begin in November 19.
The government has also set aside 8 billion shillings in order to repair and improve facilities in Kenyan Public schools so as to provide for proper learning spaces for students.
