Learning institutions in Nandi County especially secondary schools have been tasked to ensure a quarter of its students make it to universities.
This is according to the Deputy County Commissioner for Chesumei Sub-County Mrs. Diana Wekesa who cited the need for secondary schools in the region to ensure they get at least a quarter of their students to universities for prosperity.
Speaking during the education stakeholders’ forum meeting held at Chesumei constituency which brought together school principals, chairs of board of management, administration and education officials from the Ministry of Education, Wekesa affirmed the need to achieve the target saying it will improve development in the county.
“I want to ask each and every institution from across the county to ensure they get a quarter of their students to universities annually as we will have several others joining TTIs and colleges and this will improve development in our region,” Wasike affirmed.
The DCC revealed that the main agenda of the forum was to discuss the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education 2020 results and a call to schools to improve by ensuring they maintain team work, competence and passion for the education in the entire county.
She added that their aim is to focus on schools that have good facilities but have not been performing for a long time, to find a way forward on how to improve their performance.
