Each year about 50 schools go on strike during the month of July, this year (2008) over
300 schools were on revolt during the second term. It is a tension filled month because of
the mocks, schools running out of money and meals way below standard. Students have
endured six months of what they consider ill treatment, incompetence and absenteeism of
teachers, administrative corruption, poor maintenance of buildings and no one to listen to
their normally reasonable complaints and suggestions. It is also the cold season in the
highlands and students have little to keep themselves warm, physically and morally. The
only way to attract attention they reason is by radical means: striking though rarely with
arson until recently.
Post-election violence could be a cause. Some student’s moral responsibility was totally
killed during the ‘troubles’. They burnt houses; saw people running away, children falling
from exhaustion, from hunger and thirst for water. They became immune to any feelings of
humanity. They regarded their deeds as successful when they saw people being killed or
maimed and property destroyed. The perpetrators of such deeds (who included students)
were not reprimanded but were regarded as heroes, some students got an idea that in order
to successful, one needed to disrupt and destroy systems.
The study adopted a Descriptive research design. This enhanced the researcher to obtain a
better understanding of the students’ participation and reinforcement of school rules in
selected secondary schools in Rongo division,Rongo district. The method chosen allowed a
collection of comprehensive and intensive data and provided an in-depth understanding of
the topic under study.
