Magoha Ask Teachers, Learners To Get Ready For Toughest Academic Year

Magoha Ask Teachers, Learners To Get Ready For Toughest Academic Year.
The education calendar for 2022 is expected to be one of the most difficult. In the midst of rising Covid-19 cases and heightened political tensions, five national examinations in primary and secondary schools will be held.
Yesterday, Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha stated that teachers would be critical to exam success and containing cases of arson in schools before the end of the year.
According to the CS, all five national exams have already been scheduled.
In 2022, two Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams will be held, as well as a Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC) for Grade Six students in primary schools.
The second last batch of 8-4-4 students will sit for KCPE exams in March 2022, while the final batch of 8-4-4 students will sit for KCPE exams in December after a new government is in place.
Meanwhile, in secondary schools, students currently in Form Four will take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam in March 2022, while those in Form Three will take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam in December of the same year.
“I besiege you to do all your best to perform your role as Centre Managers for two KCPE and one Grade Six examination. We count on you to deliver as you have always done,” said Magoha.
The CS made the remarks at the official start of the 17th annual delegates conference of the Kenya Primary School Headteachers Association (KEPSHA) in Mombasa.
He stated that school principals represent a critical mass of stakeholders who can make a significant contribution to Kenya’s development through education.
“I’ll make sure we deliver even if I’m there or not… I’ll make sure all the examinations for 2022 are all ready,” said the CS.
The assessments, according to KEPSHA chairman Johnson Nzioka, have been one of the most difficult challenges for teachers in implementing the CBC.
“We are working with Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) to make sure that assessments that are supposed to be done by in Grade 4, 5 and 6 are executed well and results filed,” said Nzioka.
Other challenges, he said, include streamlining teacher transfers, teacher capacity, school funding, and gaps encountered when learners transfer.
Teachers also expressed concern that the State’s bloated budget due to election preparations would worsen the delay in disbursement of funds to schools.
However, the CS stated that funds to operate public schools across the country will be released next week. He stated that he had expressed his concern to Treasury Cabinet Secretary Ukur Yatani.
He mentioned that the second round of desk funding would be distributed to all primary schools.
Magoha, speaking at Sheikh Khalifa Welfare in Mombasa, condemned arson attacks in schools.
“Indiscipline students should be kept out of schools and will only be allowed to sit for exams outside the schools,” said Magoha.

He also stated that the Covid-19 pandemic posed a significant challenge to the industry.
Magoha said the Covid-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption in all sectors, the most serious of which is education. Teachers have borne the brunt of the pressure that comes with the compressed school terms since the school’s closure last year.
