Thursday, June 18, 2020: There has been increased attention paid to the question of whether the government should reopen or not to in September as earlier proposed by the Ministry of Education or to shift it to start in January 2021. Given the health concerns, majority of parents are torn over whether or not to send their children back. A key question arises: how prepared is the government to handle the situation? It is for this reason that the Institute of Economic Affairs held a webinar to investigate the challenges that beset the education sector and invited Mr. Kahil Indimuli, Chairperson - Kenya Secondary School Heads Association; Mr. Nicholas Maiyo, Chairperson - Kenya National Parents Association and Ms. Mutheu Kasanga, Chairperson - Kenya Private Schools Association to discuss some of the key guidelines the government must adopt to ensure safety of learners when classes resume to curtail the spread of the virus.
