KUPPET: High Schools Are Not Read For Junior Secondary Schools

KUPPET Rejects MOE’s New KCSE Grading Structure

The move by the ministry of education to change KCSE grading structure has been challenged by the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers. KUPPET has termed the changes as a knee jerk reaction that will confuse the candidates more than helping them.

According to KUPPET, the changes will make students go for the easier options thus posing a threat to STEM related subjects and courses.

“The government is employing an escapist scheme that will see a lesser number of students taking up science subjects and thus will need to equip less number of facilities and laboratories,” Akello Misori, the KUPPET secretary general revealed.

Promote the student to take the easier route in academics and will slowly diminish the technical subjects.

“This will be detrimental to the science subjects because students are now going to take an easier route,” Misori added.

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.
