Is this the best they could do.
smfh.
This gava is giving up on the youth.
Sasa wakianza kugoma coz of KCSE will it be scrapped too?
Bob marley in one of his songs said give them an inch they take a yard, give them a yard they take a mile. Gava has just done that bila consultations na washika dau. I cry the beloved country, where are we headed if we can give in to juveniles?

you know school heads, i hear they are called princis these days, just love projects...wakisha nunua schoolbus finally lazima watafute kingine cha kufanya so dorm moja mzee lazima ichomeke so that they build "an ultramodern" one... am not saying all the cases are this way but hii excuse ya mock is just that...an excuse. 27 years since Bombolulu girls fire we should have learnt to do something to prevent...

I think mocks served no purpose and should have been done away with a long time ago. KCPE too should be scrapped. One set of exams done by a 13yr old shouldn't carry that much weight in determining the quality of education going forward. Instead high schools should look at the general performance of the kids over the final 3yrs of primary education.

Perhaps we could first think of what role did mock exams play in education? My take, nothing. Hizi ni zile culture Obama alikua anasema tuache juu hazisaidii.

Not arguing for this country's education system. I agree that its flawed.

I think the issue @Meria Mata is raising here is that those in authority are bending because kids are up in arms. If the govt wants to implement a better education plan, they should do it because they sat down and made the decision, not because someone's burning his textbooks and a chemistry lab somewhere. If they start making decisions based on uproars caused, they'll just get a crop of very unruly (more than usual) University students, which then translates into unruly employees/citizens and so on. By the time we're done, people will be taking to the streets for every single thing.

Also, teenagers throwing tantrums is hardly a reason to blink at.

I don't think the state of our education system would allow for you proposal to work. People would just pay to have their kid's records changed. It's easier to deal with people who leak examination papers than to establish a new system of record keeping.
