Parents storm school over dismal performance

15 March 2013, 15:24 James Kabotia

Irate parents of Muramati Primary School in Laikipia on Thursday withdrew their children from the institution owing to the laxity of teachers which has led to dismal performance of the school in 2012 K.C.P.E exam.

Waving twigs and placards, the parents protested within the school compound demanding audience with the Ministry of Education in Laikipia on the issue.

The school had a mean score of 181 marks out of 500 and emerged the last in the county.

However, Kenya National Union of Teachers Executive Secretary in Laikipia Jackson Thangei confirmed to the media on Thursday that a teacher had been sent to the school to look into the matter.

“A teacher from Ereri Primary School has been sent to the school and I assure the parents of Muramati that the matter will be solved in one month’s time,” said Thangei.

Thangei urged the parents to allow their children back to school, saying that the matter is been looked into by education stakeholders in Laikipia.

During the announcement of the 2012 K.C.P.E results, the seventh candidate nationally came from Laikipia County.

Douglas Gichohi also emerged the top candidate in the county after scoring 472 marks.
