MoE lowers entry grade for teacher trainee in Marginalized counties

Ministry of education has lowered entry grades for teacher trainee in certificate and diploma levels in nomad counties.

The move has been instigated by low Net Enrollment Rate (NER) in those counties. Report shows that fifteen years since the introduction of Free Primary Education (FPE), net enrollment rate in mandera is 22.6%, Wajir 25.9%, Marsabit 63.7% and Tana river 63.8% while the national average is 84.6%.

The report further reveals that the situation is more worse at the secondary level. While the national level is 47.5%, Turkana’s NER is 8.6%, Mandera 7.2% and Marsabitand Samburu 12.7% and 15.7% respectively.

According to the report, one of the major barrier in the delivery of quality basic education to Nomadic communities is acute shortage of trained teachers from local nomadic communities.
