BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,21ST DEC 2017-The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has decried over what its termed as irregularities in the just released Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination results and wants it recalled.
KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion in a statement Thursday says stated that the marking process does not meet international standards of measurement and evaluation and should be thoroughly audited.
He says that it has destroyed the future of many children and the hopes of many families.
“There seems to be a deliberate effort to force more students to join tertiary institutions. Reduction in the number of students joining universities is an indicator of disaster. Something is wrong,” he stated.
He further added that the Kenya National Examinations Council lacks credibility as it does not have a substantive Chief Executive Officer with all roles being taken over by the Chairman George Magoha and Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi.
Sossion said the government was talking about a 100 per cent transition from primary to secondary and wondered why it was limiting transition from secondary school to university.
His sentiments were also echoed by NASA leader Raila Odinga Who has urged the ministry to launch investigations into want he termed as massive failure of the exams by students.
