Principals of secondary schools have been directed to with immediate effect start admitting students into JSS 1 and SS 1 in their respective schools.
Commissioner of basic and secondary education Dr. Jabbi kilgori gave the directive in a chat with our education correspondent.
He said the directive became imperative due to low turnout of JSS 1 and SS 1 Students in most of the secondary schools despite the commencement of 2017/2018 academic session for about a Month.
Dr Kilgori noted that adequate strategies were put in place to ensure full enrollment and retention of pupils in schools.
He acknowledged the commitment of government and other relevant stakeholders towards bequeathing the education sector.
He then advised parents to prioritize education of their wards in order to have productive society.
