Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey has criticized the system in use of deploying teachers in schools in rural areas.
He reiterated that schools in rural areas have been neglected by the government by not given enough teachers which has contributed to poor performance and lack of motivation by parents and pupils.
He said that National schools have been provided with enough teachers contrary to District schools citing an example of St.Paul’s Kiptoror secondary school in Cherang’any, which has only three teachers from TSC with more than 200 students and they are gauged in the same measure,forcing parents to employ more teachers.
“All schools must be subjected to the same standard because every child in Kenya has a right to education,”he posed.
Kosgey attributed the rising cases of inequality to the education sector which for long has been used to be “De facto” in determining the future of a Kenyan child.
He urged the government to deploy more teachers to schools in rural areas to enable young people to be knowledgeable to enable them participate in the development of their counties and the country as a whole.
He was speaking this weekend in St.Paul’s Kiptoror Cherang’any during a fund-raising to support the construction of a modern laboratory in the school.
