A Sigh Of Hope To Examiner Teachers As KUPPET Makes New Demands To Knec

The Kenya Certificate Of Secondary Education exams are underway and will be ending in a Week's time.The candidates will be getting into their third week of exams and they are expected to finish by 21st of this month.

Examiner teachers have already received calling letters for marking with chief examiners and team leaders expected to reported to Nairobi from tomorrow for coordination purposes. Other examiners should report by 21st.

Marking this year had come at an odd time with previous years exams being marked during December holidays. All these changes came about due to the interference of the school calendar because of corona virus.

The teachers will have all seasons to smile after their giant union Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers has come out to address their plights ahead of the marking exercise. In a letter sent to Kenya National Examination Council from the Union's Busia county branch and signed by Moffats Okisai,the branch secretary general. The union has raised several grievances raised by the examiners. Among them are;

1. The union is against the pooled transport system that the exams council says should be the cheapest. Examiners should travel by air to Nairobi.

2. Individual teachers should be sent their transport cash from the exam council to the examiners phones.

3. That the exam council should reconsider remuneration for Home science paper 3,agriculture paper 3 and computer studies paper 3.

4.Exam marking fee to be increased to 200 flat rate for all papers. It has stagnated for long.

The union wants the issues to be addressed immediately as marking is set in a week's time.
