Teacher's Service Commission (TSC) boss Nancy Macharia has revealed that 56 teachers involved in Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) malpractices are being investigated.
Speaking at the Kenya National Examinations Council headquarters in Nairobi, Nancy Macharia noted that all teachers who manned the examinations did their work well except the 56.
“We are investigating the 56 teachers implicated, but we will recognize the many who ensured the exam was a success,” she said as quoted by Standard Media.
This was during the release of the 2019 KCPE examination results.
Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magogha also came out during the event to congratulate teachers and students for their cooperation in making sure the event went on smoothly.
“The results we are releasing today have minimal cases of irregularities, none of the papers was leaked and we also had zero cases of fake exam papers,” said Magoha as quoted by Standard Media.
The KCPE examination had no cheating. The only malpractice witnessed was the case of impersonation.
During the event, Magoha noted that the Secondary schools placement exercise will begin on Tuesday and by 2nd December the students will have known the school they will join.
The Education CS noted that the government has set aside a total of 9000 scholarships for needy students.
