Shock as parents and teachers force AMINA MOHAMED to makes a U-turn on Form 1 admissions-This docket may be too heavy for her

Sunday January 6, 2019-Education Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohamed, has changed tune on the resolve against direct admission of Form One students by school principals.

This follows the protests by school principals and parents over the ministry’s directive banning the direct admission of Form 1 students.

However, in a statement, Education Ministry indicated that principals will be allowed to admit students by uploading list of requests of those who are seeking to be absorbed in their institutions.

In the directive, school heads have been directed to upload onto the ministry’s web portal details of students who have applied directly to their schools for admission or transfer

The requests will then be approved by the ministry based on merit.

“All principals who may have issued hard copy letters to parents are advised to regularise the process by uploading the students’ details onto the online system to fast-track the process of validation and approval.”

“We wish to assure parents and guardians that all genuine transfer cases will be considered before the end of the Form One reporting period,” said Amina through her PS Dr. Belio Kipsang stated.
