KCSE Examiners if Not Paid, They Threaten to Disrupt Exams
KCSE Examiners if Not Paid, They Threaten to Disrupt Exams. Candidates in form four classes around the country are working hard to prepare for the national exams, which will begin in November of this year.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has recently threatened to disrupt this year’s national exams if the government, working through the ministry of education, does not pay them their dues for the Kcse they took a year ago.
According to the trustworthy source we have from today’s Daily Nation newspaper dated July 31, 2023, the teachers have openly stated that they will not mark the tests unless the government pays the 2022 arrears.
Despite Hon. Ezekiel Machogu, the cabinet secretary for education, promising that the teachers would be paid shortly, the government has yet to pay the teachers who observed and marked the Kcse exams last year. The teachers have yet to receive their back pay after seven months.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it’s a good idea for teachers to disrupt forthcoming national examinations if they don’t get paid their arrears by 2022? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
