Parents vow to go to court to have national exams postponed

06 October 2015, 11:21 Dennis Omidoh

Nairobi - The Kenya National Parents Association Secretary General Musau Ndunda has said candidates are being forced to sit for national exams which they haven’t prepared for.

According to Ndunda, the just ended teachers’ strike grossly affected the candidates’ preparedness for the exams, and it would have been fair to have them delayed a bit.

“The candidates, especially those in public schools lost a lot during the strike. Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) should have considered this,” Ndunda said in Nairobi on Monday.

KNEC turned down a request by teachers to revise the national examinations timetable to allow them prepare the candidates well for the exams after their strike was called off.

Regarding the new closing dates for third term the government announced late last month, Ndunda said……..

“Third term should be extended until 11 December because parents paid fees for September to November, not October to November,” Ndunda said.

He threatened to move to court to have the dates extended saying this will enable teachers finish the syllabus.

“Students are required to be in school for 270 days, that is 39 weeks, but this is not the case here.

“We will go to court to have this effected, if this fails, schools will have to refund fees paid by parents for the one month the teachers were on strike,” Ndunda said.
