Just five days ago, Education CS George Magoha announced that students in Grade 4, Class 8 and Form Four are expected back in school on October 12. However, the announcement was met with several concerns including the short notice and a recent spike in COVID-19 infections. Teachers also have to deal with inadequate funds, poor sub-county coordination and lack of personal protective equipment as schools reopen today. #BackToSchool is currently the number one trending topic on Twitter as Kenyans air their sentiments on the resumption of school after their closure in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

Things to consider & have a full update.
Is number of kids #BackToSchool same as before the break?
If not,what's the whereabouts of the missing kids?
Is it child labor, crime or joined terror groups?
We can concentrate so much on #COVID19 loosing on the simple basics.
