Nancy Macharia, the CEO of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), has stated that the commission will take stern action against teachers who are involved in exam irregularities.
“Overall, I am pleased to say that nearly all of the teachers who were involved in the KCPE process conducted themselves with the highest professionalism.” Macharia stated.
Macharia stated that the commission will not allow a few bad apples to taint the teaching profession’s reputation.
She asked the Kenya National Examinations Council to send the commission a list of teachers who had been found guilty.
“I congratulate them and inform them that our secondary school teachers are ready to welcome them all next term,” she said.
Overall, I am pleased to say that nearly all of the teachers who were involved in the tests did so with the highest professionalism.”
TSC warns instructors about the dangers of leaking exams.
There were 28,255 Centre Managers, 28,546 Supervisors, 73,866 Invigilators, and 7,275 Examiners participated in the KCPE exam in 2021.
Magoha claimed that during the examination period, just a few incidents of anomalies were recorded across the country, and that appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
“As far as abnormalities go, this primary exam normally doesn’t have many because it’s not a high-stakes exam,” he explained.
This time, we had 320 students in seven examination centers attempting to cooperate. Each of those candidates will pay a price, and the exam administrators in those centers will be harshly reprimanded in the customary manner,” the CS added.
There were 1,225,507 candidates who took the test during the exam period, compared to 1,191,752 in 2020.
