'Adult education learners are doing well'

13 May 2013, 13:57 Alloys Musyoka

Ministry of education in Kilifi County has said that 171 adult education learners will be sitting their final KCSE and KCPE exams at the end of the year.

According to Adult Education Director in the county David Thengele, the learners are from different districts in the seven constituencies in Kilifi.

Addressing the media in Malindi, Thengele said that out of the 171 adult education learners, 145 will be sitting their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education while 26 will be finalizing their Secondary Education.

The Adult Learners Education director said that the learners are doing well expressing optimism that more will join school and complete learning in a bid to reduce illiteracy in the region.

Thengele said that the level of poverty in the area has led to high levels of illiteracy, a gap which he noted can be reduced by locals who did not attend schools joining adult education program.

“We know if those who did not get chance to join schools when they were young can do that now because it is not expensive. The level of illiteracy in this area will be reduced in future. Our aim is to enable at least everyone to read and write,” he noted.

The officer disclosed that some students have performed well in their final exams and can continue with higher education.

The officer pointed a case where a form four adult learner scored a mean score of B in Kaloleni district in 2012.

He said his office is organizing to support the form four leaver to go to Kenyatta University for higher education.

“The student performed well but he is coming from a poor background. That's why we are planning to take him there so that he can also be example to others who want to join adult learning in the area," he said.
