The National Parents Association has called for collective parenting over the increasing
indiscipline cases involving students from various schools.
The Association's National Chairman Nicholas Maiyo says collective parenting will play a
critical role in reducing the spike in indiscipline cases among students.
Maiyo says the increasing cases weeks after students were allowed back to learning institutions
should worry all stakeholders in the education sector.
"Several students have in the past 10 months been involved in various income-generating
activities. Some have been working in the boda boda sector and the rest tried to raise money
through agribusiness activities. It needs collective responsibility to get them back to class."
"The most important thing is to forge unity of purpose among all stakeholders. Parents should
have an interest in learning behavioural change in their children. Let us not release our children
to schools without proper counselling.”
