Give Students More Say, Urges Unicef Boss

Nairobi — Secondary school heads were on Tuesday urged to give their students a greater say in the running of the institutions.

However, this right to play a role in decision-making must be balanced with responsibilities, said United Nations Children's Fund country director Olivia Yambi.

Dr Yambi said it was time school managements recognised the contributions and enormous talents of young people.

"Rest assured that it will not neutralise your authority. As they build these skills, young people will start to think of themselves as partners and stakeholders in society -- they will be responsible for the decisions that affect their lives," said Dr Yambi when she presented her paper titled Accelerating Attainment of Vision 2030 -- UNICEF Perspective of the Key Social Pillar.
