Education in Kenya needs re-evaluation

05 February 2015, 14:47

Nairobi - Education is the fundamental wealth of a nation, simply because it prepares a nation's labour force.

In most developed nations, education is a right of the citizens and therefore offered freely by the state. In return, the state requires that its citizen develop their professional and academic lives with utmost credibility.

Universal education is a sovereign right of every human being and it is owed to them by their respective countries. The governments and authorities in these countries have a duty to ensure that the quality of education offered is of high quality if not world class standards.

Recently, Kenyans have been treated to shocking revelations of tertiary institutions selling certificates.

Students who want quick entry into the job market have been victims of this scandalous behaviour.

One of the national television stations aired an investigative piece to expose this unimaginable behaviour.

Ministry of education officials have been on the spot for let this rot to spread in the system by not doing their jobs as required.

The best the cabinet secretary interviewed in the investigative documentary could do is express his shock at the revelation.

The exposé has defamed the education sector and now employers are coming out to confess that new recruits have little skill if any when absorbed into the job market.

Relevant agencies and offices should be held accountable when such catastrophes plague the education sector. Measures should be put in place to address this menace. Solutions should affect the grassroots as it heads up the ladder because this rot is a revelation of the unethical practices in all levels of education.
