Children from public schools will now have their lessons aired on TV, radio and YouTube after they were ordered to stay at home following the corona virus invasion in the country.
Education CS George Magoha said lessons for 15million learners who are now at home will begin on March 23, 2020.
“In partnership with the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC), the ministry will broadcast radio programmes daily from Monday to Friday through Radio Taifa and English Service,” he said .
Radio Taifa lessons are expected to run from 10am to 11am while English Service programmes will be aired from 9:15am to 12pm and again from 2pm to 4pm.this is meant to enhance the extinction of mind relaxation of the learners so as to keep focused on the books and studies in general.
The lessons will also be broadcast on Iftini FM and Transworld in Garissa, Mandera and Wajir.
For lessons on television, the ministry will be broadcasting lessons on Edu Channel which is available on the Signet free-to-air channel.
But the big question remains what about those children coming from poor backgrounds without a radio neither do they have a television ?who will educate them during this epidemic sequence of problems being faced in this country?
