Report: 64pc of public primary school teachers miss classes

By KBC Reporter

64 percent of teachers in public primary schools do not attend classes according to a report made public on Tuesday.

The report further says the student text book ratio remains at 5:1 despite government injecting 10 billion shillings to cater for text books in public schools in the last three years.

While releasing the report, the Director General at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development Leah Rotich said that majority of pupils entry age at school is over the prescribed age limit with Garissa, Turkana and Kwale recording older pupils in class.

The report recommends a review of the school feeding program and captures a deficit of teachers in the country.
