Government to release Sh8.2 billion for infrastructure to secondary schools from January

The Ministry of Education will from next month release Sh8.2 billion to expand infrastructure in secondary schools to facilitate the 100 per cent transition policy.

Principal Secretary in the ministry Belio Kipsang said yesterday the funding from the World Bank would go into construction of science laboratories.

Dr Kipsang said the infrastructure investment was part of the State’s wider plan to encourage science and innovation in schools as the country transits from the 8-4-4 system of education to the new Competency Based Curriculum.“We are investing Sh8.2 billion through the World Bank to ensure that we have adequate laboratories in our schools and to ensure that there are many opportunities for our students,” he said.
