"We have realised that we develop boarding high schools in the constituency yet children in Githunguri district do not get admitted to the schools and only get to go to day schools which need to be equipped," Baiya said.
Baiya was Speaking yesterday at Nyaga Day Secondary School in Kwamaiko Githunguri where CDF donated Sh3 million to build a laboratory.
"It is a deliberate move by the CDF so that we may help change the situation in day secondary schools. We also want to have a feeding programme in all day schools to help keep students in class as a way to improve education standards in the district," he said.
Baiya called upon parents not to allow negative politics to ruin schools. CDF Chairman Mburu Karoba said most of the funds will be used to build the infrastructure of day schools.
"We need to provide students with a conducive learning environment," Karoba said. The area ward rep Karungo wa Thangwa said reports of drug abuse have been on the rise and the barons have been targeting students.
He assured parents that the county assembly has passed laws that will see to it that no drugs or alcohol will be seen or sold near schools.
"Drugs and alcohol have been a challenge to schools as they are available. I urge parents to be vigilant and get involved in their children's education," Thangwa said.
