Government to fund needy students. The government through the ministry of education has promised to fund 90% of university fee. According to the education cabinet secretary Ezekiel Machogu, this funding will help learners especially those from poor backgrounds.
In addition, the cabinet secretary said that the new model that is used in funding higher education institutions is going to give learners access to online jobs in this modern world.
Machogu while speaking at Gullib Lityei secondary school in West pokot confirmed the fact that Kenya is currently facing shortage of educators. In addition, he said that the ministry of education is aiming at employing a minimum of 20,000 new educators.
Machogu also urged the people from that community to prioritize the education of girls. He added that girls are supposed to be taken to education institutions so as to compete with other students.
In Kenya,there are some cultures which still hold onto the old believes that were against education of females. As a result,gurls in this region do not have an opportunity to access education.
Machugu has told Kenyans that they have to forget the old cultural practices that are against the education of girls. Girls should therefore be given equal opportunities as those of males in the society.
West pokot is currently facing a high shortage of teachers. Normal school operations are therefore becoming a problem because there are not enough educators to lead the high numbers of learners in education institutions.
The former governor of West pokot, John Lonyangapuo, has urged the government to consider that county when they’ll be employing educators. This according to him will help solve the many problems that are experienced in schools as a result of this shortage.
