Save the Children Jacob Arii Ekidor on Tuesday called for the amendment of basic education act of 2013 with a view to ensuring that APBET schools are expressly provided for under the definition of Basic education.
According to the International NGO recognition of APBET schools remains the most significant challenged faced by APBET schools in Kenya.
Ekidor said that the absence of official recognition hampers these schools from receiving necessary support, resources and funding.
“As a result, they struggle to provide quality education to their students, leading to lower learning outcomes,” said the NGO.
Ekidor observed that APBET schools in Kenya are denied access to government support programs designed to uplift and improve quality of education.
