TEACHERS PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN EDUCATION
As we mark this year’s World Education Day, we thank all Kenyan teachers for their sacrifice in re-starting the school learning processes after the Covid-19 stay at home period.
Teachers are the most important factor in any education system. We are proud of the dedication and professionalism with which you carry out your work.
The Commission values your contribution in equipping learners with the skills that will make them competitive in a fast changing world.
This is the essence of education and the pivotal role of a teacher in it cannot be overemphasized.
Coming against a backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s World Education Day is significant.
It reminds us not to relent in teaching our learners about Covid-19 safety protocols and also to be innovative while offering education to overcome restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
Incidentally, education will offer the solution to this pandemic as it has helped mankind to solve other challenges.
Indeed, Nelson Mandela reminds us the importance of education in his famous quote: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
