Bridge Schools Dragged Back To Court

Bridge Academy schools were found to be in poor conditions by the Education Ministry

After a few days after High Court cleared the Ministry of Education to close down Bridge International schools, physician another Human Rights Watch dog of Legal Brains Trust has dragged the same schools to court for allegedly violating children’s rights when it operated a Pre-primary Education without a valid license.

Legal Brains wants Court to compel the embattled schools to submit in court a list of names and addresses of their pupils and tuition fees it used to charge.

The NGO contends that the schools continued to operate despite inadequate sanitation and buildings which put the lives of the affected pupils at health risks.

Document before court shows that the schools have been misrepresenting themselves as registered licensed schools by the ministry of education whereas not.

In August this year, help the Ministry of Education directed that all the 63 campuses of Bridge International be closed after finding out  that the schools did not meet the required academic and hygienic  standards.

High Court judge Patricia Basaza early  this month proceeded and upheld the Ministry’s decision

Court has now summoned Bridge International schools which will be represented by is directors to file a defense within 15 days before the case is set for hearing.
