Matiang’i says poor management, not term dates to blame for arson in schools

In May, Matiang’i reorganised the school calendar and announced far-reaching changes in the administration of national examinations to curb cheating.

He banned all social activities in third term including prayer days, visiting, half term breaks, sports, prize-giving ceremonies and annual general meetings – to cut contact between candidates and outsiders.

To accommodate the changes, term two, which was initially scheduled to end on August 5, was extended to August 12, shortening the holidays to only two weeks from the previous four.

The third term will last only nine weeks from the previous 12, beginning on August 29 and ending on October 28.
