“To add insult to injury the council is currently reviewing its rules to put more burden on teachers by merging exam centers and cutting down on the already poor compensation for scripts.

 

 

“The proposed head of national examination centers would be adverse to the effect of effective management of examination”

 

 

The union warned that the merger would take away the autonomy of schools, increase the travel of examinees and weaken the security of submission of materials.

 

 

 

The head of the primary school who served as the center manager for the KCPE exams is expected to receive his daily subsistence allowance for a total of 4 days, which includes the rehearsal day.

 

 

KNEC however failed to consider the payment for Deputy Principal Teachers and Deputy Principals who appeared during the examination period as Assistant Center Managers.

 

 

 

Teachers handling science subjects, preparing and administering practicals during KCSE examinations will also not get a single penny.

 

 

The marking exercise of 2020 was marked under extreme pressure with teachers working for more than 8 hours day and night.

 

 

KUPPET has warned that it will call for demonstration at KNEC headquarters if teachers are not paid within seven days.
