Just In: Confusion As Teachers Wants Government To Change The Name Junior Secondary To The Following

The introduction of Junior Secondary schools has made it difficult for the Kenya Kwanza administration to control the education sector.

President William Ruto was urged by educators, led by Nyandarua Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) branch Secretary Johana Ndung'u, to explore using the names senior elementary or intermediate level in instead of junior secondary.

Following the presidential education taskforce's approval, junior high will now be held at primary schools.

Officials with the KNUT questioned why Grade Six, which is located in a primary school, should be termed junior secondary school, stating that this could have an impact on their academic performance.

If Grade Six is referred to as Junior Secondary, the kids will be confused as to why they are being called that when they are actually in primary school. They may experience mental effects as well as a decline in their academic self-worth, he said.

Other significant improvements in education include the fact that KCPE candidates will soon learn where they have been admitted. The results of the KCSE exams are still pending for the students.
