Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama has hit out at section of Day School heads for charging parents extra costs.

The furious Arama said this was uncalled for and those doing so were contravening the government policy on free secondary education.

He revealed that some day schools were forcing parents to pay extra money and interfering with the 100 percent transition.

The second term MP was categorical that dayschool secondary education is free and no parent should be forced to pay extra fee.

According to him,the feeding program for students in Day Schools should be an agreement between parents and school and should not be used to keep students out of School.

Arama who was speaking at NG-CDF office on Thursday during issuance of bursary cheques worth Ksh.20 million for needy students, said he will take up the matter with relevant ministry.

He added that if action will not be taken,then he will lobby parents and assess situation in schools where complaints have been raised.

“As far as I am concerned and as far as Jubilee administration is concerned Education in secondary Day Schools is free.Its against the law for school heads to demand extra money in the name of lunch.I will personally deal with this in Parliament” said Arama.

He added that the government will not condone such acts from school heads whom he insisted had no authority at the moment to send away students.

The Jubilee Legislator maintained that that he will work closely with administrators to ensure full transition to secondary.

He called for dialogue with the ministry of education officials whenever a school is in crisis instead of sending learners away.

“We want to ensure all children are in school as per government policy” said Arama.
