The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) is now being marked, and it is anticipated to be finished by the weekend. In order for KNEC to be able to release the results on time, many examiners are working around the clock to make sure they beat the deadline.
However, yesterday when they were marking CRE paper one, instructors protested against their working conditions and remuneration. Examiners want an increase in compensation from Ksh 55 to Ksh 100 each script from KNEC.
Send home any protesting examiners. Additionally, it recruited other qualified examiners to go mark CRE Paper 1 at St Francis Girls High School Mang'u.
The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has acted in response to yesterday's teachers strike, which is good news for KCSE examiners.
Now, KUPPET wants KNEC to standardize the salary for all KCSE teachers. All KCSE writers should receive Ksh 100 per script, according to KUPPET. Since examiners often work from as early as 4:00 am to 11:00 pm, they also want KNEC to enhance the working conditions for teachers.
