    Mike Sonko is against the elimination of boarding primary schools in Kenya. Primary boarding schools for students in grades 1 through 9 will be eliminated starting in January 2023, according to government declaration.

    Parents will have to send their primary school-aged children to day schools, according to a Tuesday announcement by the new Basic Education Principal Secretary, Belio Kipsang.

    “We must create a way in which we can be with our children and the only way is through day schooling. The first nine years of learning that are Grades 1 to 9, the direction that the government is taking will be day schooling,” says PS Kipsang.

    The government has already mandated that JSS be placed at primary schools, thus students will continue their education at their current institutions, which must now be day schools.

    “We cannot outsource our responsibility as we parents, we only co-parent with teachers but we cannot outsource parenting from the teachers,” Kipsang continues.

    The unorthodox policy’s overall result is that students who transition to junior secondary schools will enroll in local day schools.

    Mike Sonko says the idea is not viable;

    “HII MAMBO YA KU ABOLISH PRIMARY BOARDING SCHOOLS HAPANA.

    In my own opinion I think the move is ill advised. For some children a boarding school is the best and safest place to be away from chaotic marriages, torture from step fathers/mothers, uncles and aunts etc.”

    “Going forward, day schooling will be the direction, that’s the only way we shall be able to engage with our children.” insists PS Belio Kipsang.

    What is the future of primary boarding schools?
