Leaders in Lamu have vowed to unite in improving the worrying education standards in the county.
The leaders said it was a pity for Lamu County currently the recipient of billions of shillings for mega development projects yet it has no human resources capacity to take up the many employment opportunities.
The leaders claim that Lamu County was receiving billions of shillings and a number of infrastructure development projects were spring up in the area but lacks human resource capacity to benefit from the opportunities.
They said it was time parents take education of their children seriously so that young people in the region can reap from upcoming projects such as LAPSSET.
They asked teachers to abide by the ministry’s new education curriculum.
Lamu Deputy Governor Abdul Hakim said, the county government has already opened all polytechnics encouraging youth who have dropped out of school to enrol in such institutions to acquire technical knowledge.
