Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has abolished the admission of students in Public secondary school based on applications starting from the forthcoming academic year ( September 2014).

This has been disclosed through a statement released few minutes ago to the press by Secretary for Education, Science and Technology.

According to the statement, government has reverted to the merit system of selecting student into public secondary Schools.

“The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology would like to inform all members of the general public that with effect from the 2014/15 academic year which starts in September 2014, admission of students in public secondary schools based on applications has been abolished.

“The Ministry has reverted to the merit system of selecting students into public secondary schools to improve the efficiency of the system and more importantly to ensure high quality of education and fairness to candidates”, reads the statement in part.

In the statement, the ministry has urged all student who may not make it to public schools through merit to pursue their studies through Community day Secondary schools.

“Following this policy shift, the Ministry would like to urge all candidates who may not make it to public secondary schools through selection by merit to still pursue their education through the Open and Distance Learning mode available in most of our public secondary schools”, the statement continue to read.

The Ministry has, however ,warned all headteachers and teachers of public secondary schools to desist from illegally admission of students in public secondary schools including their own wards as that action will attract appropriate disciplinary action.
