School fires are a call for dialogue from students
Let’s face it. Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i stirred the waters when he confronted the status quo in the education sector. He disbanded the Kenya National Examination Council and formed a water tight body that sealed all the avenues of examination cheating. The beneficiaries of earlier anomalies were alarmed. He then went for the text books issue, which was an avenue for corruption. The conservative forces in the ministry got alarmed, too. Dr Matiang’i’s approach is simple: Breaking the chains that have undermined the quality of education in this country.
