2 min read
In Gusii Land we have been seeing Teachers being blamed when the students fail exams , there is many questions we want to ask ourselves before even blaming teachers , What is the role of parent towards the achievement of the school ?

Most of the time when the school fails to perform well blame game emerges between the parents, Board of management but teachers get more blame than any other

 Following the recent observation by Gusii star it has come out clear that some parents have failed their mandate of monitoring the school progress until when the school underperforms,

  For Instance if the school is doing well no parents is concerned about  it  but when it fails they start insulting teachers and even call for  transfers.

 In Gusii Land we have been seeing Teachers being blamed when  the students fail exams , there is many questions we want to ask ourselves before even blaming teachers ,  What is the role of parent towards the achievement  of  the school ?

 Some of the parents  don’t even care about whereabouts of the children when in school , they don’t even do follow ups , they don’t even  check whether there is progress of his/her children  in school but only  waiting to complain either when one has done KCPE or KSCE .

 Other parents abuse teachers on front of their children making it difficult for the students to respect their teachers resulting to undisciplined.

 Another thing is that before you blame teachers more so in secondary school first know the marks you son or daughter got in Primary school. How can you expect someone who scored 130 out of 500 to score an A unless and otherwise some few cases? The same child is competing with a student at Alliance school who scored 450 marks.

 It High time parents should realize that they have a lot that they can contribute to the achievement of the school more so community school and county schools.

 In most cases parents are called to attended General meeting were they can channel ways on how they can improve the studies of the school ,unfortunately  you find 10 out of 300 parents attending the meeting who can only pass resolutions which will be opposed by many.

  For any school to perform well al, stakeholders should come in board and work toward posterity of the school.
