KUPPET calls on President Ruto to address JSS crisis


Teachers from KUPPET are calling on President William Ruto to address the crisis in Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) implementation.

They want the government to dissolve the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform and revert the decision to domicile Grade 7 learners in primary schools.

Akello Misori, KUPPET Secretary-General, has noted that learning has been affected in JSS due to a lack of teachers.

The union has called for a crisis meeting with education stakeholders to discuss the way forward.

To avert the crisis, the government contracted the School Equipment Production Unit (SEPU) to procure mobile labs at a cost of Ksh1.6 million per institution.
