"Fluency in the English and
Kiswahili languages is consistent with the educational objectives.
Acquisition of literacy, numeracy, creativity and communication skills
underpin our education system. In this piece, Kennedy Buhere writes

across all the disciplines or the curriculum" ~ Buhere
English language teachers should help schools build school libraries where the students would go and immerse themselves in on fiction and nonfiction alike: novels, plays, poetry, biographies, historical novels, journals, magazines and trade books on related fields.
The teachers should advise the school administration against tying students on textbooks, and neglecting fiction and nonfiction works outside those prescribed as set books for Literature.
Adoption of this advice by the school is consistent with the aims and objectives of the English curriculum even though the books students may be asked to read may not be in the syllabus.

Up to 60,000 teachers could benefit from Sh6.8 billion additional funding to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). The teachers' employer requested the amount from the National Treasury as part of the supplementary budget that is before the National Assembly for approval.
