KUPPET Blames the Current JSS Confusion on The Presidential Working Party
Secondary school teachers now blame the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms for the ‘mess’ in Grade 7.
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers Secretary General Akello Misori faulted the 49-member team for what they term as a decision based on public opinion.
Misori said learners in Grade 7 have not been learning, two months into the school term.
“The Working Party should be disbanded because they have misled more than 1.2 million students,” Misori said.
The union SG said the team relied on public opinion to give the second interim report that directed Grade 7 to be domiciled in primary schools.
The team came under fire warning of impending doom in the education sector.
“Notwithstanding their eminence in the society the working party has contributed more confusion than solutions in the JSS transition,” he said.
Kuppet chairman Omboka Milemba also said it’s not too late for the government to rescind on domiciling Grade 7.
Milemba explained that for instance in his Emuhaya Constituency learners are teaching fellow learners.
“No learning is taking place but our education officials are afraid of reporting because of fear of victimisation,” Misori said.
