Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, took steps to rein in educators and lower the cost of hands-on instruction in accordance with the CBK (CBC).
Machogu outlined the costs that classroom parents and teachers will shoulder in implementation instructions released by the State Department of Basic Education on January 24.
The CS mandated that all education take place in classrooms and frowned upon students traveling far from home for practicals.
“Learning will be conducted in the classroom except where learning involves activities that require learners to visit local sites such as construction sites, businesses, industries and the local community to acquire the skills,” the statement read.
The school administration was instructed to use manila sheets, drawing papers, and other inexpensive materials.
The Ministry dissected the topic into components and made a list of the many tools that would be needed. In the area of safety, teachers would supply students with first-aid kits, books, and online resources.
“This necessitates creativity to improvise the resources or scan the environment to get them. Content can be implemented without incurring any cost,” read the comment on the material stand section.
Parents were encouraged to provide materials including drawing paper, geometric sets, and household items so their children could do art projects.
To ensure that students have all they need to fully engage in their energy resources lessons, schools and caregivers will make sure that the necessary resources are made available.
Machogu further broke down the functions of the laboratory, which is a must-have for all junior secondary schools.
In these laboratories, students would engage in hands-on experiments involving a wide range of topics, including the properties of various elements and compounds, the interactions between organisms and their environments, and the interaction between different forms of energy and force.
In the document, teachers were given the responsibility of ensuring the learners’ safety while they were participating in science-related activities.
