The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Schools have closed and stu­dents will be on va­ca­tion for two months. This means stu­dents will spend more time with fam­ily and friends. The gov­ern­ment has how­ever banned hol­i­day tu­ition to en­able chil­dren to have time to re­lax af­ter a long time in school. Re­cently, how­ever, schools have flouted the di­rec­tives given by Ed­u­ca­tion CS Fred Ma­tiang’I re­gard­ing hol­i­day tu­ition. Po­lice have had to en­force these rules and a cou­ple of schools have been closed. Some school own­ers and teach­ers have been ar­rested. Dur­ing the De­cem­ber holidays, there are many ac­tiv­i­ties that ex­pose ado­les­cents to risky be­hav­iours. Hol­i­day tu­ition of­fers a good op­por­tu­nity to keep them away from such ac­tiv­i­ties. in ad­di­tion, they of­fer slow learn­ers an op­por­tu­nity to learn and catch up with the rest. Par­ents are aware of peer in­flu­ence and they pre­fer en­gag­ing their chil­dren in con­struc­tive ac­tiv­i­ties. That’s why some pre­fer hol­i­day tu­ition.
