Tuition still goes on and kids work too hard, despite ban
Many schools are still conducting tuition and overcharging parents, despite it being banned by the ministry of Education. Every morning, it is common for one to see children in civilian attire going to school, including those in in lower classes and even baby class. The government issued a school calendar that should be followed to the letter to ensure all that children rest and play. But many schools, especially private ones, have ignored this circular. This business must be put to an end. On Monday, Teachers at St Anne’s’ Ahero Primary School were arrested and the students were sent home by Education PS Belio Kipsang’. We should see more of this enforcement. The school was hosting children from different schools, both in primary and secondary level. Parents also have responsibility in this. They should not allow their children to go for tuition classes. There is no need to over work them.
