The deployment of heads of secondary schools to regions other than their place of birth is in the best interest of the students and the educational sector as a whole, the Cabinet secretary for Education Amina Mohamed has said.
She said the delocalisation policy the Teachers Service Commission had adopted aims at creating a national outlook in the mindset of the school heads by appreciating the cultural diversities of Kenya.
Amina said the policy will enable school heads to effectively nurture learners who hail from different cultural environments into patriotic members of our society.
The Cabinet secretary made the remarks when she received more than 80 students who topped in last year’s KCPE examination in their counties at her Jogoo House office on Friday.
The students had toured the Ministry of Education offices under the Pupils Reward Scheme (PURES Village) — Programme for Top Students which enables them to stay in State House a week and learn about government operations.
