The three alternatives for 2020 KCPE and KCSE candidates

Parents expressed their concerns after Education CS Professor George Magoha announced that schools would reopen next year.

Following the announcement, experts went out of their way to research on the issue of schools reopening. They have faulted CS Magoha for postponing school reopening to 2021.

The experts have given Professor Magoha three alternatives, especially for candidates who were to sit for their exams this year.

One suggestion is that no student should repeat the class they are in. Instead, they should all move to the next class and cover the syllabus they would have covered together with that of the next class.

This way, they will all recover the time they lost when schools closed down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking at an interview with a local news station, Mutheu Kasanga shared his sentiments on behalf of the experts.

“All students must be allowed to move to the next class. Teachers must then use recovery methods to ensure that learning losses are minimized,” he said.

The experts also suggested that Magoha reopens schools on September instead of January 2021. They asked him to focus on the 2020 candidates who are supposed to sit for their exams this year. This way, there would be no congestion in schools when things go back to normal.

E-learning

The third and last alternative they gave the CS was about e-learning. They said that the government should consider facilitating e-learning by issuing students with laptops and tablets.

This suggestion revived questions on the 24.6 billion laptop project which has never materialized to date.

Among the reasons cited for the failure of the project are; teachers’ lack of ICT skills, and underdevelopment of schools.

The experts aver that social distancing may be a big problem if schools reopen. However, they failed to give a solution to the issue.

Magoha said that schools would only reopen if cases reduce significantly for 14 consecutive days.
