Clarify Position on Secondary School Fees

Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (KCCB) – Commissions for Education and Religious Education on Tuesday, February 04 asked the Ministry of education to clarify to the public its position on the issue of secondary school fees, reports CISA.

The commission in a press statement said: “It is concerned by reports that bright children admitted to some national, extra –county and county schools may not be able to take up their places because their parents or guardians cannot afford to pay the high fees charged by these schools.”

The bishops faulted the Ministry of Education’s move of supporting secondary schools charging high fees as reported in one of the local dailies (Daily Nation February 04 2014 page 9) saying it represents “a total turnaround” from the ministry’s earlier directive that had restricted any fee increase by secondary schools.

The bishops further added that the alleged fee increase by a number of schools has further worsened the situation and will deny children admission over lack of fees.

“It is very sad that these high extra charges will put the future of bright but needy children in jeopardy by denying them form one places in some of the best schools they were selected to,” said the statement signed by the KCCB Commission for Education and Religious Education Chairman, Rt Rev Maurice M Mukumba, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru.
