Good News for County School Teachers: Public School Categorization Will Be Eliminated
The classification of schools as national, extra county, or county schools may be abolished, according to the government.
President William Ruto declared that the Task force on CBC will provide advice to the government in this regard in a speech read on his behalf to head teachers attending a conference in Mombasa. Dr. Belio Kipsang is the principal secretary in the ministry of education.
“One of the critical Issues in this categorization where we have some schools called sub-county, county, extra-county and national schools.
They are all our schools and therefore the presidential working party has been told to look at the whole question of Categorization of schools and if at all it’s necessary”, the president stated.
Admission of outstanding students to national and extra county schools is likely to halt should the government abolish secondary school categorisation.
As a result, teachers in sub-county schools will also have the chance to work with intelligent pupils as the selection process won’t be biased in favor of national schools.
They will be able to create high-quality grades, which TSC often uses to promote them.
The fact that the ministry typically assigns them pupils with poor entering conduct will be welcome news to those instructors who are stagnating in their job groups as a result of the underwhelming performance of their schools.
Teachers in sub-county and county schools with outdated infrastructure have not benefited from categorization, which makes it challenging to deliver.
Second, underperforming sub-county schools may attract the attention of the state, which could result in increased funding being directed toward building new facilities and hiring more teachers
