KCSE Grade E Students to join teacher training colleges as from this period
In order to alleviate the severe lack of tutors in the Northern counties, Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition, has promised to decrease entry standards for teacher trainees.
While speaking at Habaswein Township, Wajir County, Mr. Odinga pledged that his administration would employ affirmative action to guarantee that the region has enough teachers.
In his remark he said “We will make sure the youth here may attend to teacher training institutions even with Grade E because there aren’t enough teachers because of insecurity.”
Administration previously opposed efforts to decrease entry standards for teachers from disadvantaged regions.
Due to unrest, foreign teachers have left Wajir, Mandera, and Garissa.
A number local teachers should be trained, according to Mr. Odinga, to assist bridge the gap.
All qualified instructors who have not yet found employment will all be hired starting in September. This region has suffered because of insecurity, but affirmative action will help make things right, he said.
At least 28 people were killed in 2014 when Al-Shabaab terrorists boarded a bus in Mandera, took control of it, and drove it to Somalia. The majority of the victims were teachers traveling to Nairobi for the December holidays.
Along with promising free education from kindergarten through university, Mr. Odinga, who was joined by his running mate Martha Karua and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, made the same pledge.
“Our youths will acquire decent jobs after their schooling; not lugging wheelbarrows,” he stated.
Hon.Raila Odinga, the Azimio presidential contender, pledged earlier this month to hire all out-of-work teachers to assist with curriculum implementation.
Hon.Odinga pledges to reform education in Kenya’s north-eastern regions in agenda number 8 of his ten-point agenda platform.
“Education cannot be compromised. According to Azimio’s agenda 8, “Waste Not a Single Child,” the AZIMIO program will be an ambitious plan to ensure that all of our children, not just some of them, have the legal right to receive great education.
At least 350,000 teachers are unemployed. Some have spent more than ten years outside. Such teachers now have optimism thanks to the most recent news.
