9.15-3.15, 9.30-3.30…several inset training days for teachers, ile ilinichekesha sana, there is an interval in between GCSE exams so the poor dears can rest. And the way that child can grasp and articulate stuff unashangaa.
Thats why nilitafutia Some Say Jnr shule iko walking distance from home. Anamka 7am tusumbuane mpaka 8:15 am then nimpeleke juu iko 10 min away from home. Kitu siwezi kubali ni ujinga ya kuamsha mtoto 4am ama 5am.
They wake up that early and go to be taught by low-IQ teachers who can’t even explain nor research…their work is to say the exact same thing that is in the syllabus book they crammed beforehand like reading a script and think they’re teaching. And still the syllabus book itself was written by a low IQed person poorly written, concepts poorly or not even explained leading a kid to just cram them but can’t understand what’s really going on or why is it happening so and so.
And if you happen to ask a bonobo teacher why is something so and so they won’t explain (because of the syllabus books themselves and also that they don’t research) but will rather just repeat to state the same thing that led you to ask the same question.
The kids hence learn a lot but very shallow learning. White kids on the other hand learn less but very deep properly explained content.
Hence you can’t compare the reasoning of the 2 kids eventually.
Most private schools want to cane kids so they can cram and pass KCPE/KCSE and make the school a good destination for every parents kid.
And I was a good victim; my parents took me to Kakamega Hill School Primary Academy na nakumbuka tulichapwa vibaya sana ndio tupite.
The school itself scrapped of any co curricular activities ndio tusome vizuri. I came to even know of them when I entered High School. Learning there was from 4:30 the teacher enters at 5:00am till 8:50 pm, no breaks except short ones of a few minutes
Luckily, I joined a good High School in 2013 in Nairobi founded by a certain white guy from Britain not these hard cramming schools
That primary school really wasted us and it’s not like we even gained anything or were better than others academically even after that hard drilling. In fact we were at a big disadvantage
