The parliamentary committee on Education has demanded answers from top ministry officials over errors in textbooks supplied by the government to schools.
Chairman Julius Meli on Sunday said they have summoned PSs, officials from the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development and publishers to explain the errors.
Terming them grave, Meli said his committee wanted to establish the extent to which the errors might hurt learning and ensure Sh7 billion books did not go to waste. He spoke at St Mathews ACK Church in his Tinderet constituency.
The decision by the government to publish and distribute books was a milestone to ensure learners get books.
