Leave JSS and Grade 7 Alone; KNUT, KEPSHA Tell KUPPET

KNUT Supports MOE’s New KCSE Grading Structure

The Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, has supported the adoption of the new KCSE grading reforms.

Secretary General, Collins Oyuu said the rigidity in the marking and grading of learners has resulted in empty slots in colleges.

“We have had a problem of filing some colleges such as teaching colleges, and this has been due to the rigidity in grading and entry requirements,” Oyuu said.

He states that the ideology blends the CBC into the 8-4-4 curriculum.

We must not forget why we changed from the 8-4-4; the system condemned learners in three transition stages, when they completed Class 8 those who didn’t pass are let go, in Form Four the same thing and in University, graduates are suffering from lack of skills,” he said.

The new KCSE grading structure will be implemented for the remaining classes under 8-4-4.

The changes, announced on Monday by the Education Cabinet Secretary, will take effect this year.

Under the new arrangement, proposed by the Presidential Working Party for Education Reform, the grading of KCSE will now use two compulsory subjects in determining the learners’ final scores.

The two mandatory subjects will be Mathematics and one language, (English, Kiswahili or Kenyan Sign Language) and any other five best performed subjects.

Previously there were five mandatory subjects across three cluster groups – Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, two sciences and one humanity.
