One week delay in school reopening

Government decided to shift it because of census

10-08-2019 by redazione

A week's sledge in the reopening of public schools in Kenya. The decision has been taken yesterday by the Ministry of Education , which changed the date of resumption of lessons in the last quarter from August 26 to September 2.
The reason for this was explained in a circular sent to the county education departments by the Education PS Belio Kipsang, who cited as the reason for the change of date the fact that it is contemporary with the national census that will be carried out in the nights (!?!) between 24 and 25 August and 31 August 2019. With the opening of the 26th in fact many families, finishing their holidays, would have found themselves on the weekend of August 24 and 25 still far from home or traveling. Many Kenyans usually return for at least three weeks to their native villages, far from their places of residence and work.The census in Kenya takes place every ten years, but the last one took place during the day.
"For the next census to be successful, it is the desire of the National Bureau of Statistics that there should be minimal movement of the population so that it can count as many citizens as possible," said Kipsang.
