Magoha hints government will place Junior Secondary learners in private schools, parents to pay fees

21st September, 2022

Pioneer pupils in Grade Six who will be transiting to junior secondary schools (JSS) under the new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) will have to apply for the slots, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha said.

The learners are expected to transit to Grade Seven in January next year.

“First of all, the children will have to apply and we are going to tell them the number of slots available. We are almost completing the process. We encourage the private schools, which we will say are ready for junior secondary schools, to allow the children to apply on the public platform so that they are placed,” said Prof Magoha.
