Frequent Teacher Motivation Influenced High Exam Performance in Private Schools
Frequent Teacher Motivation Influenced High Exam Performance in Private Schools. Hon. David Parapara Karani, chair of the Kenya Private Schools Association (KPSA) Busia, stated that one of the main reasons private schools score better than their public counterparts in the county’s national exams is because the former’s teachers are more motivated.
Speaking at a one-day session of education stakeholders at Farmview Hotel, Karani, who serves as the MCA for Angurai East, said the motivation stems from the fact that, in comparison to public schools, 90% of students at private schools are enrolled in classes.
The Chair stated that students in private schools have an edge over those in public schools because they are provided with a cup of porridge by 10 a.m., when their blood sugar levels are at their lowest, and they are served lunch in class.
The Chair noted that students in private schools have an advantage over those in public schools since they are provided with a cup of porridge by 10 am, when their blood sugar levels are at their lowest, and they can eat lunch there, as opposed to public school students who must walk home for lunch.
“Unlike their homes, where there isn’t a suitable learning atmosphere, students seek a different environment when they report to school. This is what distinguishes private schools from other private schools, according to Karani.
The MCA concurred with stakeholders that poverty needed urgent intervention, primarily by embracing agriculture, and that it is the “elephant in the room.”
The head of private schools requested both county and national governments’ Ministries of Trade to hunt for markets for nearby farmers so that parents could pay for their children’s tuition.
Therefore for a better performance teachers welfare should also be well taken care of.
