Drama was today witnessed in one of the schools in Naivasha after a number of students were sent back home with their children after taking them back to school.
Revealing what happened, the head teacher of the school claimed that he did this due to the fact that both parents and their children know all the school rules and regulations. In his own words, the man claimed that all students are told when they should report back to school and for this reason, he added that as a school, they don’t want to entertain kids who do things as per their own rules.
“We told them to make sure they come early. They know all the school rules and regulations and this is one of the main reasons why we decided to send them back home in the order for them to learn how to obey law and order. This is one of the main reasons why we are currently having a hard time dealing with the increasing rate of crime in schools due to the fact that even parents are not listening. We have sent them back home and if they do the same tomorrow, they’ll go back home”, he said
This is happening at the same time when the Cabinet secretary of education Professor George Magoha has called upon head teachers to make sure they don’t chase away kids who can’t pay their school fees claiming that the government was going to look into this and help them.
According to the reports given by Magoha, he said that the government was currently working hard in order to maintain the education system of Kenya in the midst of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and for this reason, claimed that sending kids back home will not help them do this.
