Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Chairperson Omboko Milemba asked the Ministry of Education to consider abolishing boarding schools.

“Boarding schools do not have a future. We should abolish them gradually in a manner that will not affect the education sector.

“They are not helping anything, they just increase fees. Day schools should be the norm. It will help parents to discipline their children,” stated Milemba.

He also promised to provide a document in mid-February 2021 to help guide chaplains in primary and secondary schools on how to handle restlessness in schools.
