During selection students will be required to select two national schools of their choice,two regional schools, four county schools,two private schools of their choice and 4 sub-county schools.The selection Will be purely based on merit and that parents need not to worry provided they do select school for their children according to their preference.
In this selection of junior secondary schools under CBC, over 1.2million will be competing for the vacancies in junior secondary schools which have been constructed by the ministry of education and the private schools.A crisis is looming given that the staffing situation in our schools is teething issue the ministry of education in conjunction with the TSC has not been resolved.
Children who will select private schools however,will meet the fee cost charged by those schools as the government will not cater for those costs,parents are therefore, hereby reminded that that’s their personal choice if they can afford.
