Court upholds Busia’s decision to close 10 Bridge International schools
Monday, February 20, 2017
A High Court has upheld a decision to close all Bridge International Academies in Busia for failing to meet education standards.
Justice Korir on Friday dismissed a complaint from the school after it sought to contest the decision by the Busia County education board.
Korir directed the board to effect its decision in April, which comes shortly after Uganda directed that all Bridge schools be closed.
This is to allow the county to secure slots for the affected children at a public school of their choice at the end of the current term.
