“We are piloting aspects of this and before long we will be able to now roll out this project with the support we are getting from World Bank and it will change completely even the manner we are using resources from the Exchequer as we move forward,” he said.

He revealed that the government has in the past put in place initiatives meant to stem the rising cases of arson in schools which include the banning of sub-county and county mock examinations.

“Ninety nine percent of the schools affected are public schools which means that private schools are not affected by this unrest or a very insignificant proportion of the schools that are affected are private schools. So far only two national schools, Meru schools and a school in West Pokot have had cases of unrest,” he said.

Other measures include the establishment of student councils and elections of their teachers and the inclusion of student leaders n Boards of Management.

Other initiatives include the use of quota systems in Form One Selection including the proportionate sharing of places between candidates of public and private schools.
