(KDRTV) – Education CS George Magoha’s order to reopen schools next week has raised a storm on social media.

The school calendar will run until December 23, before schools close for Christmas holidays and reopen on January 4.

Third term for class 8 and form 4s will end in late March with national exams scheduled to start on March 22.

KCPE will run for three days until March 24, while KCSE which begins immediately the next day will end on April 16, 2021.

Kenyans have questioned the speed in reopening of schools, just a week after President Uhuru Kenyatta had announced that parents will first discuss on ‘HOW’ to keep the children safe before embarking on ‘WHEN’ to reopen schools.

Particularly, Kenyans are concerned with the move to allow grade 4 kids back to school.

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said he does not understand how he will allow his grade 4 son back to school when his older brother, in class 6, remains at home.

“I have a child in class 6 and another in Grade 4 what’s the logic of taking the grade 4 chap to school on Monday while the older one is at home,” Murkomen tweeted.

Most Kenyans have questioned the move to allow grade 4 kids back to school when older students are at home.

How will the government enforce the COVID-19 protocols with the young ones?
