100 percent transition to secondary schools hailed



The government has been hailed for implementing the 100 percent transition of students from primary to secondary schools.

Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyong’o says many students in the past were unable to access secondary education.

Nyong’o says the barrier has now been abolished by the Jubilee administration noting that children who sat their class eight national examinations will have unlimited access to form one.

He says the barrier was occasioned by a number of factors that range from poverty to lack of schools.

He thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for thinking it wise not to advantage children from poor background in furthering their education beyond primary school.

Speaking in Kisumu during the launch of the distribution of teaching /learning materials for ECDE schools, Nyong’o says during his time in school they were subjected to a number of examinations to be admitted into next level of education.

He says access to education under the regime of President Kenyatta is affordable and asked parents to ensure no child is left behind.

Nyong’o assured the over 700 ECDE teachers in the county that they will be treated like any other county employee while assuring of infrastructure improvement in schools for the little children.
