Teachers demand an increase in marking rates from sh 55 to sh 100 per paper

This has come as both primary and secondary examiners have complained about the payments which they do receive per paper. They have raised their concern by saying they want the marking rates to be increased from sh 55 to sh 100 per paper. They also complained about the wages they would receive, citing them as very low. The teachers pointed out that the ministry was planning on paying them using rates that were applied in 2010.

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers secretary general Akelo Misori said the teachers have been marking exams in distress. “Teachers have said enough is enough, we will develop unspecified actions in future,” Misori said. It is good teachers to enjoy their work by receiving good salaries as they do face many challenges while on marking activities. Troubles rose in Mang'u as the ongoing marking of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examination (KCSE) was stopped indefinitely after teachers involved in the exercise downed their tools decrying poor working conditions and low wages.
