Grade six learners who are set to join junior secondary in January 2023 will not be moving to the current physical secondary schools.
This is according to an announcement by President William Ruto. President Ruto says that all junior secondary schools will be domiciled in primary schools.
President Ruto has added that the exams Grade Six pupils have just completed will not be used to place them in secondary schools.
Instead, the national exam will be used as an assessment to monitor learning progress and provide feedback to education sector players on areas that require intervention.
Ruto announced these changes when he received the preliminary recommendations of the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms (PWPER).
Following the announcement, the Ministry of Education (MoE) will provide the necessary guidelines on how the transition will be done.
