Smart reason why satellite campuses should be banned
By Peter Obare | March 11th 2016
The move by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i to suspend the establishment of new satellite campuses until further notice is much welcome.
The CS said universities borrow huge sums of money to acquire campuses that he says water down the quality of education in the country.
He ordered a freeze on loan approvals to public universities and directed the Commission for University Education not to approve any establishment of new campuses.
This just comes when CUE has found out that some 20 campuses are not conducive for learning and recommended their immediate closure.
It has been evident that some campuses are just after money. Students should be wary of such campuses.
The ministry should come up with strong rules to curb universities’ increased appetite for money.
