Cabinet Secretary for the Ministry of Education, Fred Matiang’i impressed Kenyans when he released the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) few weeks after the examination was done.
This was unique compared to the previous years where KCPE candidates had to wait to be selected for their secondary schools for a month but this time dates were set as teachers were asked to select secondary schools for these children.
Though that move was applauded by Kenyans, especially parents, the release of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) has not been smooth with the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT).
The union of teachers want the examination results (KCSE) be cancelled since it did not follow the correct marking procedures.
According to KNUT secretary, Wilson Sosion, the examination marking procedure and releasing of the exams was not followed hence bringing an irregular curve, one which has never been witnessed before.
