School heads call for adequate funding
Kenya Secondary School principals have asked the government to fully avail the capitation fund to learning institutions as the Ministry of Education plans to roll out the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) in secondary schools.
Kenya Secondary Schools Head Association (KSSHA) chairman Indimuli Kahi further emphasized the need to ensure that teachers are equipped with the requisite training to teach in junior secondary school.
Kahi acknowledged that at the moment, many public schools are grappling with infrastructural, funding and staffing challenges and therefore the government should ensure a smooth transition by putting all measures in place.
“We want to know what the government has planned ahead of the transition because we know there are teething problems like teacher preparedness,” said Kahi.
Kahi spoke on the sidelines of the ongoing 45th KSSHA annual headteachers’ conference at the Sheikh Zayed Hall in Mombasa, which has brought together over 10,000 delegates.
