Nakuru EducationGovernor Lee Kinyanjui on September 21st led the Subukia Education Stakeholders Forum towards improving performance in schools in the Sub-County.

This is one of the forums on education that will be held across the County to improve performance in primary and secondary schools. The forum, held at Subukia Polytechnic, was attended by Nakuru County education officials, TSC, head teachers, union officials and other education stakeholders.

The forum was critical as it addressed the declining performance in the Sub-County that had been ranked last in Nakuru County in national examinations.

Governor Lee said the poor performance in Subukia cannot be taken lightly and should improve.

Some of the key issues the Governor said will help improve performance include:

•Improvement in management of schools by principals through adequate supervision to ensure teachers do what they are supposed to do. TSC and head teachers should take action against those who violate code of ethics.

•The Sub-County has no boarding schools. Governor Lee said he will work with area MP Samuel Gachobe to establish two boarding schools in Subukia. One of the boarding schools will be a model school in the area.

•The County is in the process of employing 350 ECDE teachers and will seek additional funding to increase the number.

•The County will recognise and award teachers and schools that perform well in national examinations.

•The Sub-County has produced top scholars. Governor Lee challenged them to come back, form alumni and partner with teachers to improve education standards and mentor young learners.

The Governor was accompanied by Education and ICT CECM Raymond Komen, acting Youth, Gender, Culture, Sports and Social Welfare Dr. Peter Ketyenya, Public Service Management CECM Mwania Mwangangi, Nakuru County Public Service Board Chairperson Waithanji Mutiti and MCAs.
