Sossion wants our children to have phones in school

15 July 2016, 20:34 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - So apparently Sossion sat down and was trying to figure better ways to improve education in Kenya and what does he come up with, high school kids to go with phones to school.

With the number of stupid ideas coming out of our officials off late; first it was the bill that requires you to have a degree in order to be in ICT. Then there was the other one saying no caning until the students showed him by burning down their dormitories for a football match. Those ones need to wash the tarmac for two years …after proper caning. Now there is this one that is suggesting that children go to school with phones. This is Kenya, Kenya is full of hooligans and the children are the same. Please, let us not enable them.

Have you forgotten that schools had to ban carrying of food to school in order to curb idiosyncrasies in school like children from lesser families not having the same? Now can you imagine the havoc that phones will create? Food was an issue, now imagine phones?

Mr. Sossion, have you even heard of the game Poke man Go! Unless now you want to tell the teachers to uninstall it for the kids at school so that they concentrate. A teacher is having a hard enough time trying to get the kids to pay attention, now you want to ask them to deal with phones as well.

I don’t disagree that technology is important, it is but let us try dealing with it on computers first, and then in a few millenniums the kids can carry the phones when they pass the bill themselves.

If it is a matter of you suggesting that it helps train kids in building apps and what not. How about they come up with the idea while at school, then when they are at home during the holidays, they can use their phones to create it. It is called enhancing productivity.

But this is Kenya and Kenya’s children act like their elders; you guys. Judging from the way the elders behave and think, we are not ready for the kids to have the phones. They steal buckets in school, I can just imagine the drama that will be in most schools when it comes to phones.

You think they are not concentrating now; just wait until they get this pass.
