Capitation Funding JSS
Capitation Funding JSS. The majority of Junior Secondary Schools (JSSs) across the country have yet to start classes, according to an explanation given by Hon. Ezekiel Machogu, cabinet secretary for the ministry of education, on March 9.
CS Machogu made it a point to highlight how many public schools nationally had been hampered by a lack of textbooks during his testimony before the Senate Education Committee.
The cs told the committee, however, that steps were being taken to ensure that each school had an adequate supply of books depending on population.
Machogu argued that any delays in the distribution of books are not the Ministry’s fault.
Machogu also criticized the publishers for taking too long to release and distribute the resources the schools requested.
According to the cs, the government has already spent Ksh3 billion, which will produce roughly 17.8 million textbooks, or enough for every public JSS in Kenya.
The Senate Committee continued to criticize the Education Ministry for delaying the delivery of Capitation for public JSS.
Cs. Machogu revealed that everything was ready, and that on March 13 schools would begin receiving accreditation.

According to Machogu, the ministry’s failure to get the precise figure needed to enter the junior secondary Capitation into The National Education Management Information System was the cause of the delay (NEMIS).
The teachers service commission has announced an extension of the period for p2 teachers to apply in order to alleviate the staffing crisis.
