CS Magoha calls for crisis meeting ahead of schools reopening

The country is likely to be informed of changes in school reopening dates following a stakeholders meeting convened by Education CS Prof. George Magoha this Monday.

The meeting will largely address the confusion that has surrounded resumption of learning in the country, six months after schools were closed to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

In a letter dated September 7th 2020, Professor Magoha has invited all education stakeholders in the country to a special National conference to chart Kenya’s post COVID-19 future in education and specifically address school reopening.
