Teachers arrested for offering holiday tuition in Nakuru
Two teachers were arrested while offering holiday tuition to over 200 students at Pioneer School in Langa Langa, Nakuru County.
According to area chief George Nga’nga, the teachers were charging Ksh.1,200 per subject and four subjects were offered with attendance over 200 students drawn from various schools.
The teachers were taken to Bondeni police station to be processed and ready for arraignment.
In July, Education CS Amina Mohamed ruled out holiday tuition by schools saying that government policy and regulations stated that the teaching of learners during school holidays is illegal.
The CS said the Basic Education Act outlaws holiday tuition where schools provide tuition during April, August and December Holidays at a fee.
