Machogu states that teachers to teach for six hours only in a day. Cabinet Secretary for Education Ezekiel Machogu has encouraged head teachers to ensure that primary and secondary school sessions only last six hours on weekdays.
Classes should start at 8:00 am and end at 3:45 pm, according to Machogu. He made the case that instruction should not be forced but rather organic.
The educational system in Finland is renowned for being of the highest caliber, despite the 3-hour teaching day. In order for children to manage their learning and take part in physical education activities, Machogu contends that schools must adhere to the designated school hours.
At a meeting with Indimuli Kahi, the head of the Kenya Secondary School Heads Association, on Thursday at his office in Jogoo House, the CS shared his thoughts.
He expressed his appreciation to KESSHA for aiding in the management of the government’s educational program and in particular for assisting in its efforts to improve education.
Kahi raised many issues that he wants the Ministry to address to make it easier for principals to manage secondary schools.
The group wants the government to address a number of issues, including capitation payments for free day secondary education programs, school uniforms, the provision of instructional materials, the supervision of extracurricular activities, and the auditing of school funds.
Machogu stated that the ministry would form a committee to look into the issues and suggest solutions.
However, he invited the community to share suggestions for potential fixes to the issues.
Belio Kipsang, the Principal Secretary for Basic Education, pleaded with KESSHA’s leadership to keep the cost of school uniforms for its members under control.
Other influential people in attendance at the conference included senior Ministry officials and KESSHA executive executives.
