Court Suspends Implementation Of Community Based Learning (CBL)

Government has been dealt a blow after a court suspended the implementation of community based programme until a case filed by a parent is determined.

This comes barely hours after a parent(Joseph Aura) filed a petition seeking to compel Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha to re-open schools and other learning institutions, for the third term.

“I have lodged these proceedings as a parent on behalf of my children and on behalf of millions of voiceless children enrolled similarly in learning institutions across the country,” Aura says.

The father of three says in-person learning is the best when it comes to the education of children rather than virtual or any other method.

Represented by lawyer Harrison Kinyanjui, Aura filed the case under a Certificate of Urgency arguing that the prolonged open-ended closure of schools from March to date without any consultations with parents and guardians “is in violation of the Basic Education Act.”

While touring schools in Migori and Kisii counties today, CS Magoha hinted that owing to declining number of covid-19 cases, schools could reopen sooner if the trend continues.

He said: “You’re aware the virus is starting to look like it is going to stagnate. We’re saying should the situation change, we shall be ready and willing to look at the scenario once again in the interest of our children.”
