SEE WHAT KNEC DID TO NYAMBARIA HIGH SCHOOL BY ASKING STUDENTS TO STRIP NAKED.
The academic reputation of Nyambaria Boys High School in Nyamira County has suffered as a result of allegations that the school allowed students to cheat on exams. As a direct consequence of this, the educational institution is compelled to implement stringent policies for the current round of examinations.
Exam papers that had been stolen from other students were found in the room of a student just prior to the beginning of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations. This discovery led to the arrest of the school’s principal and centre manager, Charles Onyari, as well as his suspension from his roles at the school.
In light of these instances, more stringent protocols have been developed as a direct response. It was stated that students in Nyambaria were made to undress completely before entering the examination room as part of one of these processes.
According to Abuga Makori, not only was this action unethical, but it was also illegal in the country in which they lived. Noting that the screening practises generate unnecessary stress for the students, he urged the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to reform their screening practises. He noted that the screening practises cause.
Throughout his speech, Makori is particularly critical of the manner in which the KNEC is thought to be harassing KCSE students in the counties of Nyamira and Kisii. This call for responsibility is intended at both the Exam body and the TSC for their respective roles in the imposition of inappropriate pressure on students shortly before the most important tests.
This appeal is directed at both of these organisations for their respective roles in this imposition of pressure.
