Last year Education CS Prof George Magoha instructed all primary and secondary schools to start the process of replacing BoM members and present new nominees.
The CS told schools that the BoM members term was coming to an end at a time when the government discovered a breach of stipulated fees guidelines.
According to reports, Basic Education Principal Secretary (PS) Jwan Julius has announced drastic changes in school boards amid alleged interference by outside forces.
In a directive to county school heads, Jwan banned officials from the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) from sitting in schools’ boards.
The PS disclosed that the Education Ministry had discovered that having officers from MoE and TSC in school boards compromises service delivery in the learning institutions.
“It has been decided that employees of Ministry of Education and TSC shall not be nominated for appointment to Boards of Management (BoM),” read part of the letter by Jwan.
