One of the striking Kenya National Education Council (KNEC) examiners explained how rigorous regulations and chief examiners' actions drove them to take a stand against the management of the organization just one day after the KCSE marking process was suspended at St. Francis Girls School-Mang'u.
According to teachers who spoke out after being fired, KCSE marking methods were strict in contrast to marking schemes from previous years, according to the People Daily.
They said that because marking schemes could not be implemented, questions could not contain more than one solution, as they had in previous years.
An examiner who spoke to People Daily while being prevented from entering the Mang'u center said that the head examiner was abusing his position of authority by acting without regard for the feelings of the other examiners.
In addition to being treated like children, they were prohibited from communicating with family members during the day.
If this is the case, it illustrates the difficult circumstances new examiners have been facing in order to mark scripts promptly. Let's wait and see what occurs next in the interim.
