Education cabinet secretary George Magoha has maintained that the school calendar dates and the Kenya National Examinations dates will not be adjusted unless a further decision is reached by the new Cabinet Secretary of Education.
Additionally, the Cs said that exams for Standard Eight, Form Four and Grade Six have been set and ready for administration on the scheduled November dates.
What this means is that teachers have a great task of ensuring the complete term two syllabus within the remaining one month, part of which will be consumed by assessment. Surprisingly, no serious learning has occurred in term two since learners went back home barely three weeks after resuming for term two.
According to Magoha, any alteration in the school calendar may cause another round of learning disruptions. Magoha maintained that the national examinations will be held as scheduled.
The CS also said the selection portal for Junior Secondary School was opened on August 15 and will remain open until August 30 as earlier announced.
Magoha was speaking on Wednesday at Ofafa Jericho High School, Nairobi.
