Ministry of Education working on learners’ transport logistics ahead of schools’ reopening

The ministry of education is racing against time to try and find out data of school transport across the country. In a circular sent to CDEs, education PS Dr. Belio Kipsang has urged county bosses to treat the matter with expediency.

“The Ministry is in the process of mapping out transport needs of school learners and would like to get the data (on school transport) from schools within your jurisdiction,” said education PS Dr. Belio Kipsang.

Education PS further indicated that the whole process entails getting data from all schools, public and private, primary and secondary.

“You are hereby instructed to consolidate the data for the county and therefore schools are not expected to email the information directly to us by 17th May 2020,” stated Dr. Belio Kipsang.

Schools were closed on mid March this year owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. A move that saw learners loosing three weeks of first term.

With the surging numbers of Covid-19 cases each day, the cloud of uncertainty still surrounds official opening of schools.

The latest move by the ministry of education to appoint a 9-member committee that is tasked with coming up with workable strategies on schools’ reopening, has been received with mixed reactions.

Early on CS Magoha had alluded to the fact that depending on the state of covid-19 pandemic in the country, schools would reopen on 4th June 2020.

The government has so far maintained that so far there are no plans to postpone this year’s KCPE and KCSE exams.

However, plans to see to it syllabus coverage has been done in good time has been laid down. Education ministry had indicated that in order to recover the learning period lost due to the Covid-19 outbreak in the country, second term mid-term break will be shortened  and August holiday to be shortened by two weeks.
