Government through the Ministry of Education says it is working tirelessly to improve standards of education in the country’s secondary schools.
Minister of Education Agnes NyaLonje told us that government has stepped up with the efforts by purchasing 1.2 million books for science subjects.
According to NyaLonje, government has spent about MK1.5 billion to purchase the books which she said will be distributed to each learner in all secondary schools countrywide.
“The books will chiefly improve education standards in the country as well as all learners will have books to widen their knowledge,” said NyaLonje.
NyaLonje further said the country has received first consignment of the books which have been procured through Grey Matter bookshop.
Speaking to media after handing over the first consignment, Grey Matter General Manager Santosh Sanvordekar said he was excited that they have managed to beat the deadline of the contract they were awarded through the Ministry of Education.
It has for so long been said lack of adequate science equipment contributes to students’ failure to do well in science subjects in the country.
