With only few days remaining before schools are opened for the first term this year, a cross-section of leaders from Njoro and Molo have urged the government through the Ministry of Finance to release enough funds for the free education in the country.
The leaders said that, the amount of money that is normally given to the schools is not always enough saying that's the reason why many parents are now opting to take their children to private schools.
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, the leaders led by a prominent businessman Kamau Kuria said that the current education in the country needs to be boosted with enough funds if Kenya wants to realize vision 2030.
“The government needs to give schools enough funds so as to to boost the level of education in our public schools because without that it will be even hard for Kenya to realize vision 2030 dream,” said Kuria.
Kuria further urged the government to establish a firm educational foundation for the young citizens of Kenya, emphasizing the need for improved education standards in public schools.
