Students in private schools will always be privileged when it comes to learning compared to their counterparts in public institutions is without a doubt.
Schools just opened yesterday for the first term of 2015 and as students in private schools walk in to kick off their classes to the much expectant teachers in their institutions, those in public schools are still stuck at home thanks to the teachers strike.
Teachers in public schools countrywide have heeded calls from their unions to stay away from classrooms following failed negotiations on remunerations between the Teacher’s Service Commission (TSC) and the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT).
Labour Cabinet Secretary Kazugu Kambi has offered to meditate in the dispute however KNUT chairman, Mudzo Nzili has maintained that they will only return to the negotiating table if the government has a tangible offer for teachers.
TSC has now set January 9 as the next date for another round of talks.
Completing the syllabus has never been an easy task, and with each day students are forced to stay out of classes, it even becomes a much bigger challenge to achieve the same on time.
