Review fiscal & education policies due to socio-economic effects on children ~ Dr. Andrew Riechi

Dr. Andrew Rasugu Otachi Riechi calls for an urgent review of fiscal and education policies so as to address the socio-economic dimensions affecting the lives of children in a myriad of ways during the Covid-19 pandemic. He states that‘’ Due to prolonged confinement, children are being separated from their peers and teachers and deprived of socializing activities, including sports. National and state/county governments should consider mobilizing resources from development partners and international agencies to put up the necessary infrastructures for digital learning management systems, going forward.’’ Dr. Riechi wrote in his article that was published on the website of the Department of Educational Administration & Planning, University Of Nairobi.
