The Education Ministry will close down both public and private schools that have not met qualification standards by mid-June, Education PS Belio Kipsang has said.

Kipsang said students of schools that will not have met the bare minimum standards will be placed in other schools at the start of the third term.

He was speaking in Parliament on Tuesday.

Magoha was addressing vice-chancellors on Monday during the high education conference.
