Teachers want free secondary education funds released

07 October 2013, 16:06 Dareel Eric

Nairobi - The Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association have asked the government to release funds for the subsidised secondary education for third term.

The association's Vice chairperson, Kahi Indimuli, said that teachers in most schools have been running on a shoestring budget and often get into debts since the funds have not been released so far.

“The government has to devise ways of releasing the funds at one go so that they can give the headteachers an easy time running schools. The 20 percent slot for the third term has not been released to schools, which is not a good gesture,” Indimuli said.

He further noted that the schools have been unable to run as workers have not been paid for several months now, worsening their cause.

“The school workers have not been remunerated and thus hurting their performance. This should be looked into immediately,” he said.

He said that they had suggested that a bigger percentage of the funds should be released early in the year when the schools incur a lot of expenses and purchases, but then the government did not agree to it.

“We want money to be released in good time so that it does not interfere with the looming national exams, and to give headteachers a peace of mind,” he said.

He further noted that releasing the money late in third term when schools are nearing closure and their accounts closed defeats logic.

He feared that most schools may be forced to send their students back home for fees, hindering the learning process.
