KUPPET Calls For Comprehensive Revision of School Calendar

Akello Misori, Secretary-General of the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET), has also called for a comprehensive revision of the school calendar.

He said revision is important to give students enough time before exams while also relieving financial pressure on parents.

“This will ensure that when students go back, they will not be compelled to have compressed study time so they can meet the deadline for this year’s exams.

“We should be told that the examination dates have been rescheduled so we do not pump a lot of information on the learners and make them sacrifice a lot of their time,” said Misori.

The officials’ demands come at a time when schools are attempting to make up for lost time due to the Covid closures.

“We had taken a very bold move to open schools at the height of the pandemic and we have had two sets of students graduate from primary to secondary and another to higher levels.

Misori stated that when schools reopened following the prolonged school closure, students sacrificed time for sports and other extracurricular activities to make up for lost learning time.

“The minister’s way of doing things has caused a lot of anxiety and disruption because no parent will be planning, no teachers will be planning.

“We expect the minister to make further considerations and to involve the teachers in the unions,” said Misori.

Schools across the country closed for the half-term on August 2 as the country prepared for the August 9 elections.
