A Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (KSSHA) official has called on the Meru Community to greatly invest in education as part of future permanent investment and precursor to achievement of Vision 2030.
Meru County KSSHA chairperson Lewis Mwirigi said parents should take education as inheritance and not wealth remarking that all resources apart from education were waning.
Mwirigi remarked with the increasing population in the country those without proper education will be watching as others compete.

He called on parents to sacrifice for their children’s secondary school education to avoid extra expenses looking for higher education.
He said KSSHA is a professional body that looks at bettering academic and co-curricular activities for secondary schools as alleged that the body has been supporting indiscipline among teachers.
Speaking during an Educational Stakeholders’ forum in Imenti North District recently, the educationist urged secondary schools to forge strong partnerships with primary schools to offer guidance and make learners feel part of the system.
He said current cases of student indiscipline in secondary schools were acquired in primary schools hence the earlier they are noted the better they are corrected.
He appealed for parents’ vigilance on their children in primary school level before they yield to peer pressure.
Mwirigi asked the church and the political class to take advantage of the forthcoming campaign seasons to mobilize wananchi on the value of education.
“In any forum somebody should take time to speak about education,” said the chair.
He urged stakeholders to be patriotism by accepting whatever results they get arguing that educational evaluation was a collective responsibility.
