3 Reasons Why Public Schools Outshined Private Schools In KCPE

Private schools were left with a rude shock after public schools outshined them in Kenya certificate of primary education 2020 results. Out of the first top 15 , the first 10 candidates were from the public schools.

The private schools raised a concern that the government might have standardized the results which in turn favoured the learners in public schools. The ministry of education however distanced itself from the allegations saying students got what they deserved.

Speaking to the Sunday Star, Nicholas Maiyo the chairman to the national parents association have three reasons why public candidates passed their exams.

First, the goverment has been issuing out textbooks to the learners in a ratio of one to one. This enabled the learners to interact with the content easily unlike the old days when they depended on teachers book.

Secondly,he says some Schools collaborated with the parents to come up with a small fee that supported school program. The goverment has been allocating sh.1420 per pupil. The money is not enough run all activities in schools. Few money that is collected is used to pay for better services such as employing more board of management teachers.

Lastly, Maiyo revealed that good leadership in some public schools made learners to post good results.
