ODM nominated Member of Parliament (MP) Umulkheir Harun Mohamed, has urged the Government to streamline the education system in Garissa.
Speaking to the public in Garissa, the youthful MP emphasized that education is a fundamental human right for every child in Kenya.
Additionally, she stressed that citizens should not blame the 8-4-4 education system but instead appreciate the efforts of both the current and past governments.
Mohamed also acknowledged that no education system is flawless but also highlighted the need for continuous improvement.
She noted the sight of children and young people wandering the streets in towns like Garissa, Mandera, Wajir, and neighbouring Hola during school days, emphasizing the importance of addressing this issue as part of addressing challenges in the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).
Mohamed also lamented the children roaming the wilderness alongside diminishing livestock due to climate change.
She also stressed the need for the government to ensure the security of all citizens and teachers, especially those serving in arid regions.
“Failure to address these issues could lead to regret among the citizens, as the government’s promises of quality education might remain unfulfilled,” the MP warned.
