Starehe Boys Center has finally bowed to immense pressure from the united front of the Teachers Service Commission and the Ministry of Education over the structure of in the school. The government was proposing a Board of Management with the principal as the secretary which in the past wasn’t the case. This, the government argues is in line with the Basic Education Act 2013.
The former BoM had been very resistant to this move as it was not in line with the schools traditions. This forced the ministry and the teachers commission to snap as the board members were becoming too hard to convince. The commissioned had threatened to withdraw all teachers from the school in addition to the government suspending any funding or grants to the school.
With these threats seeming to become a reality, the board bowed to pressure and let the government have its wishes. The new 10-member board instituted as by the wishes of the ministry will be chaired by David Mureithi and Mr Peter Masaku the principal as its secretary.
With the inauguration of the board complete, the government is ready to resume all funding and grants to the school.
