MP calls for re-introduction of approved schools

01 August 2016, 16:24

Nairobi - A member of parliament wants the government to reintroduce approved schools in the country to deal with unrully students found to be engaging in burning of schools and other indiscipline cases.

Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri said that the government through the ministry of education should put back into operation the existing approved schools and put up new ones to deal with the rising cases of indiscipline among students.

Speaking in Bahati on Sunday Ngunjiri said that it is wrong to send students found guilty of burning schools to normal prisons saying that it might make them worse criminals.

"Long time ago we had approved schools where troublesome students were taken and those schools really helped in instilling discipline in rude students and such cases like the ones we are witnessing now were very minimal,"said Ngunjiri.

"We must bring back the approved schools and make them operational because these kids are going overboard and they must be contained or else we will not have an education sector,"he said.

"Its wrong to send these underage children to normal prisons and mix them with other criminals because doing so will make them even worse We must look for a better way of dealing with them and the approved schools will come in handy,"said Ngunjiri.
