His sentiments were echoed by Hadija Abduba –Bridge Parents Association chair from Marsabit County who said the schools have been on the move to ensure quality education by ensuring that the curriculum 8.4.4 system is followed to the latter.

She condemned the allegations that Bridge schools were going against the curriculum adding that the subjects done in the schools are as per the Kenyan Curriculum including Swahili as a subject.

“Our teachers are TSC confirmed and the subjects we offer here are up to the standard required and nothing more. We are here to ensure quality contrary to what Sossion stated in the press” she said.

She however commended Education CS Dr.Fred Matiang’I for the good performance in the Education sector and once again appealed to the CS to come in and help the school from the propaganda and criticism levied against it.

“Sossion should withdraw the statements he made against the school since it was a big blow to the parents. I however would like to thank the Education CS Dr.Fred Matiang’I for the good work and appeal to him to come in and save us from the propaganda and criticism” she said.

Her sentiments were echoed by Emmanuel Gichatha a representative of parent from Meru who said the school has played a big role in creating jobs for the P1 teachers in the country.

    Bitter truth be told, PR side shows by bridge fraternity can’t guarantee quality. Bridge should strive to clear itself through KICD recommendations on curriculum and registration of its centers by Moest.

    Bridge moved Kenya from one point to another; 1 problem of unemployment, just imagine employing over 5000 TSC teachers, over 500 managers who oversee academies, and other bodies that runs the company like HR, QAM, Master teachers dealing and approving curriculum, ICT, Finance dpt, civil engineers that construct and repair structures, warehouse managers, and many more, employing over one million people, where will these people go to if bridge is closed down? will it not lead to high crime rate? Now look at the High Quality affordable Education offered by bridge, where even mama mboga can take their children to academy, which was only ment for “able class in Kenya” .please please our children are psychologically tortured the CS Mr Fred Matiang’i to intervene to save the situation, also the Knut Secretary Mr Sossion to kindly withdraw his statements that were broadcasted.
