Mutula urges Kibaki to sign tough Bill on basic schooling

07 January 2013, 11:42

Nairobi - Education Minister Mutula Kilonzo has urged President Kibaki to sign into law a Bill seeking to compel parents to take their children to school.

According to Daily Nation, Kilonzo on Sunday said Education Bill 2012 and Kenya Institute of Education Curriculum Development (KIECD) Bill, both approved by Parliament, would be the best gifts the President could offer to schools as they open a new calendar Monday.

Under the Education Bill 2012, learning has been made compulsory from pre-school to Form Four— which together constitutes basic education. Previously, pre-school was not compulsory and basic education only covered primary level.
