Government Issues New Guidelines Ahead of Opening Of Junior High schools

Ezekiel Machogu, secretary in charge of education, New guidelines for the implementation of junior secondary school have been issued by the ministry. As the government works feverishly to ensure the opening of junior secondary schools (JSS) next week, institutions will be required to share facilities.

The ministry stated in yesterday’s guidelines that the goal of this collaboration is to make practical subjects like integrated science, agriculture, computer science, home science, and visual and performing arts easier to teach. The main activities that require a science or mobile laboratory and/or science kit are listed in the guidelines.

The ministry also outlined in the guidelines how students will be evaluated, a national summative assessment at the end of ninth grade administered by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec). The students will be evaluated in at least two optional subjects and all 12 core subjects. The evaluation will be known as the Kenya Junior Secondary Education evaluation.

Standardized SBAs for use by subject teachers in grades 7, 8, and 9 will be guided by Knec. The teachers will then score the work of the students and give them immediate feedback. After that, a school year report will be issued.

Additionally, the ministry intends to implement affirmative action to address education disparities for disadvantaged students, the establishment of low-cost boarding schools for students at risk or with disabilities in areas with a high density of settlements. Additionally, it will manage a needy school meal program.
