Interior Cabinet Secretary and Acting Education CS Fred Matiangi says the government will not withdraw the policy to delocalize school management despite the mounting opposition to the transfer of school Principals.
Matiangi who was meeting National Government Administration (NGA) officers and Regional Education coordinators in Nairobi has further directed police to deal firmly with elements disrupting the policy in an apparent reference to the ejection of school principals in some schools in the country.
These are some of the scenes that Kenyans have witnessed in the last few days.
The ejection of school principals transferred to various schools in the country in the latest policy by government to delocalize school management.
Matiangi who was meeting NGA officers and Regional Education coordinators in Nairobi has directed county commissioners to move with speed and protect civil servants from violence by apprehending the culprits.
He decried what he called the creeping culture of entitlement which he claims is to blame for the dwindling quality of education in the country.
County commissioners will now have increased roles with Matiangi directing that there is maximum take up of Form 1 slots in their areas of jurisdiction as well as strict adherence to the school fees guidelines.
In accordance with the 2016 Traffic (Amendment) Bill, schools have until the 30th of March to paint their school buses yellow while the times of travelling will be restricted to between 6am to 6pm.
