International schools to start teaching Kiswahili and Kenyan History

Education Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i on yesterday sent a tough directive to all international schools operating in Kenya. The education C.S directed that from April 1, 2017, all schools that use the international model of education will have to teach Swahili and Kenyan history in order for them to be allowed to operate in the country.

He also directed that all teachers, including those working for international schools, will only be allowed to teach after being vetted and accredited by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). “From January, no one will teach in any school in Kenya unless registered with TSC,” the CS announced

He was speaking at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development during the release of a report on Bridge International Academies. The directive from the CS marks a break from the usual order of business where international schools have operated with little or no intervention by the government.
