There has been ongoing school unrest and burning of a number of schools in different parts of the country.
The unrest has now become the center of blame games in all the different parties from parents to the government and of course teachers and school managements. So far the biggest issue being blamed for the unrest is the delocalization of schools in the country.
Under the new policy, no school head is allowed to lead in his or her native county. The first phase of delocalization was targeting to have over 10,000 targeted to different counties. This move has seen the government lock heads with the different teacher’s bodies.
For example the vocal Kenya National Union of Teachers Secretary general Wilson Sossion has openly come out to blame the mayhem on the delocalization of school heads. He accuses the ministry of education of implementing a policy without consulting with the other involved bodies.
Other issues being blamed are the pressures students are put through while in school, parents not disciplining their children from early age and school administrations not communicating well with their students.
Some of the affected students include Chianda Secondary School Siaya, Mukhokho Secondary School in Kakamega, Kisii High and many more.
Meanwhile the Cabinet Secretary for Education Amina Mohammed has maintained the exercise won’t be stopped by anything.
