As schools resume, and the first ever Junior secondary school education begins, the Government will invest Ksh.5 Billion from application Kitty to set up Laboratories In JSS.
Belio Kipsang, Education Principal Secretary, says this is an effort to ensure adequate infrastructure and to reassure parents that there is sufficient learning materials for the 1.2 million learners joining the Junior Secondary School transition.
Speaking on Monday at Arap Moi Primary school in Kajiado, while monitoring the JSS students reporting, Belio said education stake holders should work hand in hand to prepare the learners to choose pathways to senior secondary school.
He also urged parents to stop panicking over the transition , saying it was only meant to monitor and asses learners progress.
He also said that the Ministry of Education is closely working with the members of parliament to urge them to also utilize part of the NG-CDF money in improving school infrastructure.
