Tharaka Nithi county education board chairman Dr. Japhord Njeru has encouraged parents to ensure their children who sat KCPE fully transit to secondary school in order to ensure the government’s 100 per cent transition policy is achieved.
Speaking during a press briefing in Chuka, the chairman noted that the county is lagging behind at 76 per cent transition.
He said the remaining 24 percent must be found and have them enrolled in high school.
“There are still students out there who have not yet joined secondary school, we need to find out what the problem is and ensure they are enrolled in high school,” he said.
In partnership with other key stakeholders in the education sector, Njeru said they are working towards ensuring all students in Tharaka Nithi have access to education.
He hailed the initiative saying the directive on 100 per cent transition has been very transformative in ensuring every child has access to education, adding that this will boost and empower the county in the long run.
