Examiners’ Welfare 2023
Examiners’ Welfare 2023. KNEC is the sole government agency in Kenya that manages national tests for placement and certification purposes in primary, secondary, and college settings. Due to a scarcity of employees, the organization depends on teachers who are employed by the Teachers Service Commission for its outsourced services.
The poor salary and bad working conditions at the marking facilities have long been a source of complaints from teachers.
Examiners at CRE threatened to cease marking the freshly released KCSE exam, which prompted KNEC to intervene and end the crisis. The cabinet secretary for education, Ezekiel Machogu, asked instructors to put the interests of candidates and the country ahead of their own.
The marking exercise almost failed due to a problem that happened at a few of the marking centers, but KNEC was able to intervene and halt it. Machogu urged professionals taking part in national drills to put the needs of the nation first.
He did promise that the pertinent institutions will investigate the pay and wellbeing of the examiners in an effort to enhance them, though.
This comes after the examiners outcry in the last KCSE 2022 Marking. Where some examiners were complaining of their being in those institutions.
Among the reasons of some even boycotting the exercise were poor accomodation, poor meals and poor payment.
