The Kenya National Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has backed the proposal by Education CS Ezekiel Machogu to have boarding schools scrapped in phases.
As reported by the Daily Nation News Paper, the CS is lobbying the scrapping of boarding schools in Sub-county and instead have more day schools.
The Kuppet Executive Secretary Sabala Inyeni said that the proposals are in line with the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC)
This move will enable parents and guardians get involved in the up bringing of their children.
Sub-county schools are lowest cluster of secondary schools that admits students from within the locality.
During the launch of the placement of 2022 KCPE candidates to Form One, Education CS said that it was high time for the boarding schools have day school wings.
It is approximated that 70 per cent of students are day scholars according to Ezekiel Machogu.
“I encourage boarding schools to introduce day wings to enhance access and cut down costs of education. This is also in line with CBC for parental engagement in the delivery of curriculum,” said Machogu.
For the case of families that are pastoralists, the CS urged them to take their children to boarding schools since their lifestyle involves moving from one place to another in search of water and pasture.
