Bungoma head teacher in tears after students didn’t meet the expectations in KCPE.
Bungoma head teacher in the media, has expressed his disappointment after his pupils scored lowly.
According to the teacher from Moi CommonWealth Primary school in Bungoma, the first student scored 334 out of the possible 500 marks which was down below their expectations.
This came as a shock, compared to the previous examination year where the top student scored 418 marks.
The headteacher, Mr. Wanyama who is also a teacher at the school expressed that it has been hard for him to even send the results to the students.
He stated,”I am also a parent in this school. My son who had selected Maranda for his high school education had gotten 334 marks. I don’t know how to share this news with him.”
Speaking to the parents, he stated that they demand answers from the ministry of education, being that the students worked exceptionally hard this year.
He stated,”You have seen your children studying and struggling. This is not fair. You cannot compare these pupils with other pupils from other schools. We want the sub-county director to come and give us answers.”
“We want to make an appeal. These are not the results of this school,” the headteacher added.
However, yesterday, the education cabinet secretary promised 100 per cent transition , to every candidate who got their results.
He stated,”All the candidates whose results I am releasing today will be admitted to Form One, under the 100 percent transition policy.”
