Kenya: Un-affirmative action

Bankelele comments on the affirmative action programme that enables rural children to enter schools with lower scores than their urban peers. Parents of urban children are now considering allowing their kids to take their exams in the rural areas thereby ensuring them places at “coveted national schools”

  • I think that in this world we are all equal and people who are equal should be given equal opportunities so suggesting that the affirmative action that was taken to ensure that kids from rural areas allowed to join high schools with lower grades is a bad move , if anyone is against this thedn he or she is jelous let our brothers and sister share the same equal opportunity as we enjoy.
