Why are some Kenyan students not going back to school?

Thousands of learners fail to report back as Kenyan schools open

Published on January 05, 2021, The East African
Why are some Kenyan students not going back to school?

Thousands of learners in Kenya failed to report back to school on Monday as directed by the government, raising fears of mass dropouts across the country.

There have been concerns that many learners will drop out owing to various reasons. Girls are the most affected, with many having become pregnant or married during the time they were out of school.

Many other learners have been working in farms, quarries, boda boda trade and hawking in some towns.

Some parents have also delayed taking their children back to school having lost their livelihoods through job losses and failed businesses.

Some learners did not report back due to insecurity, teen pregnancies, early marriages, initiation rites, floods and fears of contracting Covid-19.

Central Primary in Eldoret town, Uasin Gishu Gishu County in the Rift Valley, recorded 70 per cent attendance on the first day of term two.
