Halfterm dates for term 2. Most school leaders have now spoken out about the struggle to keep students in school due to rising commodity costs and delays in the transfer of capitation monies to these institutions.
The latest request from headteachers and principals to the government is for the government to disburse school capitation money, or else all primary and secondary schools will close early.
In addition, the Kuppet chair, Omboko Milemba, has observed that schools have begun food rationing to pupils, which is a very crucial measure.
Government funding to schools
CS Machogu promised to that the by May 30, 2023, the government will transfer Sh28 billion to primary, junior, and senior secondary schools in the country by Friday, May 2, 2023.
When speaking to the audience at Kametho Primary and Junior Secondary School in Rarieda, County of Siaya, Machogu expressed these ideas.
President William Ruto and the administration, according to Machogu, have a new funding strategy that will make education accessible to 70% of pupils from disadvantaged homes.
Because the government is funding education at every level, according to Machogu, there is really no justification for a parent not to send their children to school.
