The Ministry of Education is set to adjust the school timetable inorder to conclude the syllabus once schools are opened.
In a dossier seen by the media, the ministry has put in plans a raft of measures to retain lost time, by cutting short the August Holidays. Students will be forced to cut short their 4 week August to just 2 weeks.
The Mid-term break that is normally slated for Mid-June, is also expected to be reduced from one week to just 4 days.
Also, the ministry will have to extend school days, and possibly terminate all extra curricular activities, inorder to divert energies into completeing the syllabus in time.
The ministry suggested that this raft of measures will be necessary, so as not to disturb the National Examinations calendar.
Despite his measures, Education CS George Magoha has been under sharp criticism for this move, with Education experts suggesting that the minister will in the long run ruin the credibility of Kenyan examinations.
Schools are scheduled to open on 6th June 2020, bound to change with the Coronavirus Pandemic situation.
