She said her office has put adequate measures to boost the standards of Education in Nakuru County.
Together with the Quality Assurance and Standards Officers from the Ministry of Education, they conduct Advisory Assessments and linking with various education departments they visit schools to talk to teachers, students and School Heads over matters of the schools.
“We have been visiting our schools to see how we can improve the grades of our students”, said Mulili.

“Teachers should use the language that motivates students and can make learners gear themselves towards improving positively from one grade to another”, said The Director.
The CDE said the County set a target early in the year that various categories of schools should attain with National Schools being given a mean of 10.0 and above, Extra County Schools a mean of 9.0 and above, County Schools a mean of 8.0 and above and Sub County Schools a mean of 7.0 and above.
