Shocking that bullying is still in some schools

A few days ago, it was there in the news of a young man who underwent some form of brutal bullying that saw him being injured in the process. According to this young man, they were about fifteen students who were paraded by the seniors with claims that they were not respectful. He went on and said that they started beating them up but for his case the beating was so lethal that he lost a tooth and another was left hanging loosely.

Though it was hard to establish whether the school management was aware of any bullying incidents in their school, it was obvious that nobody was willing to seriously take up the matter. First, this student was sent away to seek medical attention on his own to at a rather distant health centre away from the school where he was forced to trek for kilometer. Then this student’s mother had issues with the school’s management for failing to notify her of the son’s misfortunes. She claimed to have been called by another concerned parent who found her son in a sad situation.

So the media people got wind of this incident and accompanied the student and his mother to the school but were restrained from getting into the school compound. His mother called out to be let in but the gate man declined to do so citing strict instructions from above. When the gate was finally opened the teachers locked themselves up in the office and the police were called in, in the name of restoring peace. This parent was mad that nobody bothered to tell her that her son had been beaten by other students and on top of that they were still mum even when she came personally came to school. But all in all, she said that they have at least done the sane action of giving her son a transfer letter because from the experience of her son, there was no conducive environment of learning in the school.

It’s so sad that some students in schools like this one still think that they are in school to be seen and heard in their actions yet they ought to know what you leave with after finishing the studies is what really matters.

Marriage and Having Kids Was Not Meant For Everyone

There are reasons to believe that marriage and having kids was not meant for everyone. It is not bad to lead a celibate life, but we have those people who are already married or have kids of their own, however, they do not have all it takes to be parents— leave alone parenting values that might undermine their scores.

It is not that such people do not have resources necessary to bring up a healthy kid in a good parenting environment, but just because they feel that a child is a hindrance for something else. And they prefer taking other responsibilities as their first priority over their child or children.

In this era, where everything is bought by money, the search for money has taken over people’s way of life. In news today, there was a report that a two-year old boy is yet to start talking because his mother is ever out. Which is insane, considering the amount of resources available online to even teach kids how to write synonym.

According to the neighbors, the kid is always indoors and rarely see the sun because his mother is ever busy for him.

The concerned neighbors usually let him out when his mother is not around, feed him and allow him to play with other kids before sending him back to his den.

The mother who works both day and night is said to be a friend to the local police officers that this has shielded her from being arrested for negligence.

The last time that neighbors reported her to the police, the male police officer who was sent to deal with the matter ended up sleeping with her. This made the concerned people to mind their own business.

When a parent do not have means to bring up a child, the state should either force the parent to exercise his or her duties or take the child to children homes.

Why work the whole of your life while your child is suffering at the other end?  Parenting involves giving your children that much-needed love. Or if you know you can’t deal with parenting stuff, employ someone to take care of your child.

Schools now opening and what it means to parents

Kenya — From today onwards up to the end of this week are the periods when schools will be opening their doors after a long December holiday of close to two months. But everything has not been smooth with parents complaining that the school fees are way too high for them to afford. Questions have been raised as to who is responsible for controlling the fees structure of the various public schools. Some parents who have been interviewed are laying the blame on the head teachers, others on the school’s board members and others said the county’s education board.

But then something came out clear that for smooth running of schools, parents have to part with considerable amount of cash despite the government staying put that primary education is free. But on the other hand, some parents felt that it was too late for anyone to complain yet they had ample time that they could have raised their predicaments of feeling overburdened with high school fees.

Parents have also other areas of concern and this is specifically concerning the issue of purchasing of text books as this being the beginning of the year, children are graduating to the next class hence the need for these books. They said that the government has abandoned them to be exploited by text-book sellers who they said put the books at an expensive price that for sure many parents cannot afford. They said now that the government was responsible for controlling of learning curriculum in schools, it would also be best to put consideration of the prices of the same textbooks.

So if the government is committed to make education affordable and easily accessible to every Kenyan child, then let see it get in and put corrective measures for the sake of all school going children.
