Celebrate children’s grades, parents told
Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha yesterday asked parents not to undermine performance of their children in the just-released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results.
Magoha also urged the candidates to be proud of their achievements and look forward to “what tomorrow brings and the fact that God has given us life.
I want every child to get the results and let me address the parents, whatever your child brings home should be celebrated.. are we together on this one?” posed the CS.
“If a child comes home with 150 marks, who knows they might be the next doctors so all these nonsense that you have failed me and that they should repeat think about it twice before you condemn your child,” he added.
Education Principal secretary Dr Belio Kipsang also urged parents to celebrate their children for their achievement thus far.
“You know when they were going into examinations, we told them to give us their best and as we release the results, we are releasing their best and whatever that best is let us celebrate them,” he said.
Kipsang also assured school heads that the ministry is engaging National Treasury so that capitation for first term can be released in good time.
