Children Education in Kenya

Children’s  Education in Kenya: Parents who fail to send their children to school could be jailed for a year, pay a fine of Kshs5,000 ($58.8) or both if a new Bill becomes law. The law will also outlaw expulsion and forced repeating of classes.

Entry tests will be banned and no child will be denied admission to any public primary school of their choice for any reason.

However, a child who fails to cope with school life due to mental, physical or psychological reasons can be sent away with the permission of the Minister for Education, now re-designated Education Secretary.

But that child must be admitted to a correctional institution that will suit their needs

The Bill outlaws employing school-age children and protects them from torture.
