Education Degree Is One Of The Bogus Degrees To Be Scrapped Off At The Universities

A couple of days ago Cabinet Secretary George Magoha announced plans to have some degrees scrapped off, and the first casualty is Bachelors in Education degree.

For over 45 years Bachelors of Education has been offered in our local universities but now plans are in high gear to scrap it of and replaced with a five-year rigorous teacher training programme what education policy experts say secondary school graduates who qualify to join university will do basic degrees in either science or arts before proceeding for a one-year postgraduate diploma training then will enrol them as teachers after successful completion of the postgraduate diploma.

This new policy is backed by Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association, Kenya National Union of Teachers and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers while on the other hand Teachers Service Commission is adamant to the idea amid fears it could clip their mandate and commission’s influence.
