Uasin Gishu County Governor Jackson Mandago has ordered all Early Childhood Development Education teachers in the county to submit under the authority of headteachers of their respective schools.
Mr. Mandago ordered all ECDE teachers employed by the county government to be supervised by headteachers or they resign. Most of the ECDE teachers in nursery schools are employed by the county government.
There has been a decry from parents that education standards at the formative levels have been dropping due to laxity and rampant absenteeism by the teachers.
The county government of Uasin Gishu has sponsored both the construction and equipping of ECDE centres and hiring of teachers.
