HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 cc52-3W
69. Mr. Hollis

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what official recognition or financial assistance is given to the so-called Kikuyu Independent Schools' Association and to the Kenya Teachers College at Githunguri.

Mr. Lyttelton

The assent of the Director of Education was given for the establishment of these schools under the Education (Establishment of Private Schools) Regulations. Those considered likely to fit into the Kenya Government's Development Plan for Education were offered financial assistance, but the great majority rejected it.

84. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of schools of the Kikuyu Independent Schools' Association to be closed in Kenya; and the number of children involved.

Mr. Lyttelton

This information will not be available until the Government of Kenya has completed its survey of all the schools of this Association and has decided which of them should be closed for subversive activities.
