Education is overrated,I'm not breaking my back for it

My brother a teacher tells me that with CBC, public schools are at an advantage coz they get first priority on books delivered straight from KICD. Hizo text books ni ngumu kupata na haziuzwi bookstore
So if you are weighing btn the two heri public schools esp now that hakuna ranking ya mashule. Private selling points Yao imekua we had xx NOS of students with over 400, we took this many to national schools then just drilling the kids to pass on paper

Westlands primary is a very good public school. Ongezea muthaiga, Loresho and Kilimani. Loresho na Uthiru zimewekwa facilities mzuri sana na Tim Wanyonyi. Lakini hapo westlands naskia siku hizi lasma uhongane kitu kubwa ndio mtoto aingie…but performance ni mzuri

For primary school yes, you can go cheap(public). For secondary, now you begin asking yourself what you want for your child. You you want international college for them? Did they make it to a top school in secondary and is it worth changing them to private?

As mentioned by @Yuletapeli, the most important thing is the effort by the child. One who succeeds in public will succeed in private, and vice versa.

I was with kids in private school, who were top 100 in primary. They put the same efforts there while the rest of us partied away.

Performance in what sense mkuu

Even Nairobi primary iko poa. My pals kid is there. The teachers have ‘tuition’’ paid in cash kwa mwalimu, mtoto anapewa attention poa. Also in the previous kcpe system, public school candidates were not penalised like their counterparts in private for equalisation purposes. I wonder if those in private secondary schools are also penalised at kcse

middle class for long we have been sold to an overpriced education system that we struggle to pay an arm and a leg for . we all go through the same KNEC kama ume lipa school fee ya 150 k per term na wale wemeenda public sch. Tume uziwa hii story ya the best education system for your child should the best yet all is extortion wadau .

Kweli kabisa. Chances of a govt hospital hiring a quack are almost nil while most notable private clinics are manned by experienced govt medical officers and doctors moonlighting from their govt jobs. If you have the time, enda tuu public hospital upange line kama maskini hata kama uko na kakitu. Utatibiwa vizuri kuliko kwa private hospitals.

Public ni msoori saidi, especially hizo specialist clinics…you just book siku consultant atakuwa… imagine paying 200 bob to be reviewed by a specialist in a government hospital…yet unalipa the same specialist 3k akikuona kwa clinic yake.

So mtoto wa class 2 analipa Ksh 110,165 per term while university fees is 75k. These private schools are impoverishing parents. In countries where public education works like the UK, the parent would be saving hio 110k per term and after 8yrs would be a millionaire, hio pesa anajenga flat.

Middle class status huku kwa vumbi is an ongoing scam. Unashinda ukiongea kizungu all the time but kitu kidogo inakupipinya makei proper. Huku kwa ranches mwalimu asipopiga simu mtoto atasoma bure term mzima tutalipa next term na hakuna mahali anaweza tupeleka. Fellow ranchers walinichanua ukiwa na kimbelembele ya kulipa fees on time ndio watoi wanachangamkiwa kufukuzwa kila saa ukiwa na arrears coz waalimu wanajua.watarudi.na.kitu.

CBC kuna story za performance?

I wouldn’t chose a public hospital over a good private. Public yes they have qualified personnel, but work ethic is weak. Get there during a emergency, it’s will be hours before they tend to you. By the time waanze to locate your medical records, utakufa easily ukingoja. Then dawa haziko. Lazima utoe kakitu. Nurses yelling at patients. Dirty rooms, inadequate equipment.

Nope your odds of survival are much higher in a private hospital.

Wakati wa emergency huwezi saidika kwa private hospital kama huna over 100k cash.

Na emergency sio kitu ulikuwa unakusudia.

You have comprehension issues. Why would you watch from the sidelines then swoop in just to paraphrase what elders have been saying?

Toa ujinga hapa sasa. Unajua emergency Ni nini kwanza? So you even understand the process of pledging a title deed in lieu of cash payment?
