BY NAMULONGO PETER,NATION,28TH AUG 2017-Public schools across the country reopen for the third term today (Monday 28th ) after the August break.It is the term which will see standard 8 candidates sit for their final exams as well as those in form four who will be writing their KCSE final paper.
This comes even as a show down looms between The teachers service commission TSC and the Kenya National Union of Teachers KNUT following what KNUT terms as deliberate discontinuation of the TSC to implement teachers’ annual increment.
Addressing the press last Friday 25th August,2017,Kenya National Union of Teachers secretary General Wilson Sossion was categorical that failure by TSC to reinstate the program they will proceed on a national strike where all teachers who are their members will down their tools within seven days.
The move could greatly affect the management and administration of the 2017 national examinations namely KCPE and KCSE which teachers play a big role in administering .
Both exams will be written between the months of October and November 2017.
