The lawmaker says the current wave of unruliness where students resort to torching school infrastructure whenever they have grievances does not augur well with the country’s long-term aspirations.

Speaking during the issuance of school bursaries in his constituency, Badi urged parents and guardians to cooperate with teachers and help deal with intolerable behaviour.

“We like painting other people negatively. If our children are doing well, we should appreciate them and if they go wrong, we should also say it.” He said

He added that every effort should be made to enable the students to concentrate on their studies if they are to post impressive results in the national examinations.

the lawmaker says the government is currently implementing its policy on 100 percent transition. Badi notes that this is a great move that will enable every learner to access quality secondary education irrespective of their socio-economic status.

To fully ensure the success of this policy, the MP says the release of bursaries must be made promptly and adequately.

“As your MP, I don’t care whether your child got 300 marks and above or below. My duty is to ensure that they get bursaries to go to school.” He vowed.

On this occasion, a total of 1,400 secondary school students benefited from the bursaries, this being the second phase where over Kshs 12 million was issued. During the first phase which involved colleges and universities, over 1,800 students benefited with over Ksh. 26 million being distributed.

Badi noted that the bursaries will go a long way in helping parents with the challenge of lack of school fees especially during this period of Covid-19.

He said parents must always make an effort to apply for the bursaries even as he reiterated that no student should be discriminated against on basis of performance.
