* You Can Take Your Child To Your School Of Choice*
Magoha has said that the aim of Form One placement is to strike a balance for the children and give them a common platform to learn.
He said he would ignore the contempt of parents since he is proud of the process.
While describing the selection process as very precise, George Magoha urged the parents to be satisfied with the schools in which their children have been admitted.
“If we let the parents do what they want, you can be sure that it will be a messy process. But those who feel they are in a position to take their children to private schools, they are free to do so.”
Pro. Magoha said that to ensure continuity in the field of education, care has to be taken at the weakest links and this can only be done by ensuring that all learners are treated equally.
“We have a situation where middle class people want to create themselves and forget those below them, but they also deserve equal opportunities,” he remarked.
He lauded the government’s move to create an affirmative fund for children in slums, which has led to admission of 9,000 beneficiaries in schools of their choice.
On the creation of CBC classrooms, Magoha said, nationally, progress is 92 percent, but expressed his displeasure over delays by some counties, which are lagging.
He chose Muranga and Nyeri counties where he said the work was 90 percent done, but said he did not understand the delay in completion.
“I expect the remaining work to be completed within a week so that we can start the second phase of the project.”
The second batch of CS classes will be completed by July, stating that so far they have identified contractors who are able to do the work faster.
