Revealed: Teaches Aid in KCSE Cheating to Earn TSC Promotions
A number of Teachers and parents have alleged that a section of teachers aid in examination irregularities to earn promotions.
A teacher in Uasin Gishu revealed that TSC promotes teachers based on results in KCSE, and that pushes teachers to aid in exam malpractice.
“TSC has been promoting teachers based on performance in national examinations. Many teachers are tempted to aid malpractices for their students to pass, and as a result, get their promotions,” the teacher said.
Speaking to the National Assembly Committee on Education in Eldoret, a teacher called for an investigation into the deployment of examination supervisors and invigilators, claiming it was a scheme used by some officials and school heads to facilitate cheating.
According to the committee, education stakeholders raised questions about a number of schools where cheating in last year’s exams is alleged to have taken place.
