Take Care of Your Childeren- Uasin Gishu CDE to Parents
Uasin Gishu County Director of Education Muriuki Harrison has urged parents and guardians to take care of their children instead of leaving their responsibility to teachers.
Speaking to the press after inspecting junior secondary schools admissions in various schools Harrison said it is sad that parents have neglected their duties making them prone to early pregnancies and indulging themselves in drug abuse.
“In Kenya, there are many challenges that students will face such as gays and lesbianism, this issue happens when a parent fails in his mandate by not following what the children are doing and leaving it to the teacher,” said the Uasin Gishu County Director of Education.
“Ensure that you follow up with what your child is doing and the friends he or she is having, in our schools, there is also devil worshiping, as parents let’s do our mandate by ensuring we follow up on what they are doing. Parents should take their roles seriously to prevent such incidences,” he added.
He said parents are to blame for the deteriorating values of their children which have led them to involve in illegal activities.
Harrison further warned parents who have not sent Junior Secondary school students to school saying stern actions will be taken against them.
“It sad that some junior secondary school students have not yet reported, I want to give a stern warning to such parents that they should allow their children to go to school failure to which they will face the full force of the law,” said the Uasin Gishu County Director of Education.
He said parents should not be worried since they are not supposed to pay anything.
“If your child does not have a uniform let him or her come to school and no one will be sent home and incases any head teacher sends a child home let me know and I will take stern actions against them. What we want is 100 percent transition,” he said.
