Subject: Free And Compulsory Education

THAT, aware that Article 53 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010 stipulates that every child has the right to free and compulsory education; further aware that the function of basic education has been devolved pursuant to paragraph 9 of Part 2 of the Fourth Schedule to the Constitution of Kenya; deeply concerned that many school-going children within the Nairobi City County cannot access early childhood education and other cannot be retained in school due to lack of school fees especially those in informal settlements in the County; noting that basic education is one of the key pillars of a functioning education system; this Assembly urges the County Government to ensure that there is free education in all Early Childhood Education Centres in the County.
