Top education reforms
According to him (CS Machogu),one of the changes that are going to be introduced is a change in the way institutions of higher learning especially universities are funded.
Machogu has confirmed that the national government in partnership with the ministry of education are planning on implementing new ways of funding higher education institutions.
The launch of the open university of Kenya has been linked to these processes. It is believed that this ‘open university’ is going to offer online learning. As a result, it will allow as many students as possible to sign up for lectures irrespective of;
- Their geographical location
- Their age
- Their employment status.
The cabinet secretary has confirmed that the first group of students are expected to start on September this year. Likewise, he said that all the plans for setting the university in pace are underway. For instance, Garissa University is among the universities selected to offer a easy and flexible way of study to learners.
Machogu was speaking while attending the 4th graduation ceremony at Garissa University. He consequently outlined that the ministry of education is on the run to ensure that all colleges have access to tools and conducive learning environment. This will go a long way to develop learner skills and change the society wholesomely.
At the same time, the CS confirmed that the model is aimed at eliminating socioeconomic barriers. It is going to ensure that equal treatment is served to all. This reform is believed to be a key way into the development of this country.
