Government to do away with boarding schools

By Kamadi Amata

The Government is planning a major policy shift in education sector. The government will from January 2023 do away with boarding primary schools for pupils learning in grades 1 to 9.

Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang’ revealed on Tuesday that parents will have to take their primary schools kids to day schools near them.

The effect of this radical policy means that pupils transiting to Junior Secondary Schools will join day schools in their home areas.

Already the government has ordered that juniour secondary schools be domiciled at primary schools, meaning that pupils will continue schooling in their current schools – which will now have to be day schools.

“We must create a way in which we can be with our children and the only way is through day schooling. The first nine years of learning that are Grades 1 to 9, the direction that the government is taking will be day schooling,” Kipsang’ said.

Kipsang’ made the revelations when he represented President William Ruto for the official opening ceremony of the 18th Kenya Primary School Heads Association (KEPSHA.

The primary school heads are meeting in Mombasa for their Annual General Meeting at the Sheik Zayed Children’s Welfare Center.
