Schools opening date debate hots up

The debate on whether to reopen schools or not and what happens to class eight and form four examinations has roped in political leaders even as the taskforce on Covid-19 education chaired by Dr Sara Ruto is expected to complete its report this week on the way forward.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and governors have called for the postponement of national examinations should covid-19 infection cases continue to rise.

Mr Odinga — the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader — and Council of Governors chairman Wycliffe Oparanya said the government would be putting millions of lives at risk should it rush to reopen schools. Mr Odinga said it is better for learners to stay at home and remain safe instead of rushing back to school.
