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.
The judge said the order follows an inspection report which recommended the closure of ten out of the 12 schools in the county.
