Oyuu Thanks Munavu For Considering KNUT’S Recommendations
The kenya national union of teachers, KNUT secretary general, Collins Oyuu has expressed his gratitude to the presidential working party on education reforms, for honouring KNUT’s plea.
Oyuu hailed the decision, saying the task force had captured the views of teachers in the country.
“We are home and dry. We have scored highly in this game since most of our recommendations have been captured in totality. What we presented has been taken care of,” Mr Oyuu said.
The Knut boss said the three years of Grades 7-9 should be re-named senior primary school or intermediate level. “We even propose to them to have a different level of administration and also issue learners with a different set of uniforms to distinguish them from the lower level in the same set-up.”
Oyuu said the union had raised the red flag when the new system was rolled out but their views were ignored. “We had three research findings way back before the task force was formed, which took us four months to come up with. We had actually thought of giving it to the former Cabinet secretary to use as a case study but we were told the train had already taken off.”
