Since government directive that saw schools closed due to coronavirus pandemic things have been hard for BOM and private school teachers who entirely sourced their funding from these category of schools.
Today Nakuru governor came out to join the support for private school teachers who some are said to be going hungry as they cannot even feed themselves.
“The prevailing economic hardships occasioned by COVID-19 have adversely affected the teaching fraternity in private schools.
With students at home and fees no longer forthcoming, private schools are unable to sustain their workforce.
For this reason, there is compelling need to address this category of workers in our society.
In Nakuru, we shall work with the private schools to profile the most vulnerable and mobilise support to cushion them during this time.
Nakuru has many private schools that have contributed immensely to the education of our residents.
It is time we stand with the teachers. No teacher should go hungry while we watch” the governor said in support of BOM and private school teachers.
