Why Parents May Have To Dig Deeper Into Their Pockets as Schools Reopen For a Packed Term 2

Both public and private schools will open their gates on Tuesday next week for a packed Term 2 schedule with the government yet to release funds to the institutions.


School heads have been lamenting over the unbearable economy that makes it difficult for them to run the schools effectively.


As of today, the treasury CS hasn’t released the term two batch of government injections to the institutions. Teachers who marked the 2021 KCSE exams in April this year are also yet to be paid.


The government’s frustration on school-heads by failing to release funds or pay teachers on time may force them to take drastic measures, some of which may be too demanding for the pockets of parents who are paying fees for the third time this year.


Three weeks after reopening, the students will have a one-week break to allow for a smooth election process as the majority of polling stations are normally situated in schools.


The students will then resume the second part of the term for two weeks before closing on September 16th.
