Ensure national exams run smoothly

By John Njoroge.

Parents from Kuresoi and Molo Sub-counties have urged leaders to ensure proper measures are put in place for the national examinations run to smoothly.
They said learners are ready for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
“Our students have prepared themselves well for the national examinations,’’ Robert Kiplagat said, adding that the political bickering in the country might affect the performance of children.
Kiplagat said that leaders should respect the right of children in schools.
“Learning should not be politicized in any manner,’’ Jane Moraa noted.
A total of 1,003,556 candidates will sit for KCPE, while 615,773 will sit for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE). A total of 5,916 examiners have been identified for KCPE and 21,828 for KCSE examiners.
A parent who sought anonymity blamed the National Super Alliance presidential candidate, Raila Odinga who earlier said that pushing the exam dates forward would not “make the students die”.
Meanwhile, parents and guardians have lauded the sentiments by Education CS, Fred Matiang’i that would see teachers and students found culpable for the exam malpractices held accountable.
