In Kenya most of the schools are opening. Both from primary and Secondary, Private and Public schools. This is not an exception here in Kibera many pupils have been spotted here and there with backpacks heading back to school.
Parents on the other hand are ensuring that the little money they saved can be used as school fees and also buying new items for their children. Some schools were under construction during the holidays, which can be of threat to the learning environment of some. The Raila Education Center is one of the schools under construction due to poor infrastructure. This is going to affect them because they will have to share classrooms.
The turnout if the students is also low as many students are still at home and because of the teachers’ proposed strike.
We suddenly hope that this strike will be called off so that learning can pick up as some of the students/pupils will be sitting their final exams earlier than usual.
