Kenyan Govt Makes Major School Staffing Changes

Head-teachers and their deputies will now be required to possess bachelor's degrees, while principals and their deputies in secondary schools and colleges will be required to have a master's qualifications. The move is expected to herald a boom for universities, which must now be prepared to enrol thousands of teachers who have no first degrees or masters.
