MoE Same Uniform Stance. It has been declared by the Ministry of Education (MoE) and the Education Cabinet Secretary, Cs. Ezekiel Machogu, that uniform requirements cannot be imposed on pupils across the country.
In his Tuesday appearance before the National Assembly Committee on Implementation, Machogu stated the stance of the aforementioned ministry.
In response to claims that his Ministry was hesitant to accept the plan supported by members of Parliament, Machogu made the aforementioned announcement.
Machogu claims that it is not possible for all students in the nation to wear the same uniform due to the country’s current varied climate.
Machogu made the observation that students should wear bulky clothing, such as sweaters, in areas where exceptionally cold weather is common.
He continued by saying that because certain places have high temperatures, students must wear light apparel.
However, Machogu said that the various uniforms represented various ethnic traditions.
In this discussion, the CS admitted that the committee had provided the Ministry with sound suggestions on how to create a policy that would stop cartels from working with school principals to force parents to buy uniforms from particular retailers.
Machogu went on to say that the ministry has decided to send out a notice to all schools warning parents not to fall for the deceptive practices of principals who profit from these kinds of schemes.
The Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms (PWPER) had recommended uniforms for schools across the country.Machogu further emphasized that the Ministry of Education’s primary goals should be to prioritize academic pursuits and see to it that the nation completely adopts Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
