MPs vote to return examination rankings
18 March 2015, 15:38
Nairobi - MPs have voted to ensure the return of examination rankings in schools.
The move came Wednesday after they unanimously voted to have the ranking, which had been banned by the government last year to avoid examination irregularities.
The move comes barely three weeks after Education Cabinet Secretary Prof
Jacob Kaimenyi made good of the ministry’s decision to drop ranking in
schools during the release of last year’s KCSE results.
Speaking while releasing the results, Prof Jacob Kaimenyi emphasized that the demerits of ranking outweighed the merits.
Kaimenyi further intimated that the decision was made following the
findings of different committees and commissions dating way back to 1999.
The move to drop the ranking was however met with a lot of criticism from stakeholders in the education sector who termed it as a move that was meant to kill off efforts of hardworking students and teachers.
