Government Plan to turn GTTC into University Opposed

   Board members of the Garissa Teachers Training College made public their opposition to Ministry of Education plans to upgrade the college into a full fledged university. The reason given for their opposition is that such an upgrade will lead to shortages in Primary School teachers in Garissa.

 I do not wish to cast aspersions on the Board's decision without knowing the reasoning behind their position but its none the less inexplicable. As a region, we've always complained about the lack of universities and now that the government has decided to do something about it, we oppose it?

  It's a lot easier to upgrade an operational college with facilities to a University than break ground on a new one. At the risk of getting accused of being overly simplistic, I would suggest that we do not turn this opportunity down.
