Stakeholders resolve school unrest

18 January 2013, 14:10 Wangui Joseph

Secondary school principals across Nyeri County have resolved to put intensive efforts towards curbing the increased number of student strikes in the area.

During the education stakeholders forum held at Central Provincial headquarters social hall, the academicians worked towards identifying the causes and effects of school unrest in the area.

However, they said measures of commitment and cooperation have to be initiated by all stakeholders in the education sector including parents.

Teachers Service Commission officer Kinoti Imanyara said, "Last year, 149 schools went home either peacefully or violently in Mount Kenya region.’

Kinoti further pointed out that it might affect the  standard of education in the region.

“Some students are leaving a trail of destruction in their schools like destruction of property and burning down of facilities leaving their parents the burden of repaying for reconstruction bills,” said Kinoti.

He expressed worry that the unrest might amount to mass cases of indiscipline in future and if unchecked will have an adverse impact on the future educationists.

He urged teachers and all stakeholders in academic sector to swiftly find a lasting solution to salvage the sector from collapsing and involve more people towards the counseling of the teens.

They said efforts to avert further strikes in the region and revive the affected schools requires a wide range of consultations and aggressive campaigns on the importance of education and institution facilities.

The educationists from eight districts in the County highlighted self sacrifice, trust and confidence among all stakeholders as some of the key factors for successful remedy to the deteriorating situation.

During the meeting, a seven - member secretariat team was formed to put into task the recommendations made, network information between school heads and coordinate activities among relevant education authorities.
