The University bill is timely

10 December 2012, 14:32 Onyango Onyango

Survival for the fittest, a rule for jungle, is slowly becoming the norm in Kenya, from economic world to social world.

Even the academic sector is not spared.

There is an increase demand for higher education each and everyday.

KCSE  or even diploma certificates are not enough and it is perceived that one must have an undergraduate  or post graduate degrees to be considered learned.

These has in turn created a booming opportunity for investors who focus on exploiting the desperate parents and students by providing them with substandard education.

Ironically, even some government institutions also dupe parents by offering non credited courses.

The new bill which focus majorly on the quality of education in universities will help in streamlining the sector and also do away with with the discrimination and disparity between private and public universities.

It will also alleviate instances where institutions offer uncredited courses which in turn result to half-baked students being released to the market thus creating more job seekers than job creators.

It is very sad for a parent to invest heavily on his or her child's education only to be told the degrees are not recognized.

Let's hope the law will be implemented to the letter, and crooks who con us face the full arm of law.
