Here is SOSSION‘s message to TSC after majority of 2023 KCSE candidates performed poorly

Tuesday, January 9, 2024 -
 Former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General, Wilson Sossion, has broken his silence after a great number of students failed to perform well in the KCSE 2023 exams.

Only 22.27% (201, 133 candidates out of 899, 453 candidates) qualified to get the minimum qualification (C+) of direct entry to university.

In an interview with Citizen TV on Tuesday, Sossion expressed concerns over majority of candidates scoring Ds and Es, urging the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to invest in employing qualified teachers without categorizing schools under national, Extra County, county or sub-county.

“Invest in teachers for every school; not national schools but all schools without categorization because that is promoting discrimination and inequity.”

“A school is a school and that school must have a qualified teacher in the classroom all the time,” he said.

“If you check the schools that have posted A’s, they have gone the extra mile to hire BoM teachers.”

“Tenwek High School; out of the 100 teachers in the staffroom, 50 teachers are employed by the BoM,” he further said.

Sossion also urged TSC to reward teachers who have performed well so that they can be motivated further.

“How many teachers have we seen being rewarded for doing well?”

“The President has reinstated both direct and indirect promotions.”

“I would expect that TSC lays out a plan so that teachers who have done well are motivated.”

“Quality report and review of every school’s performance,” he said.
