Education News this week; Release of the 2019 KCSE results and delocalization of school heads and deputies

It is going to be a beehive of activities in the education sector this week. With the marking of the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams having been completed last week, results are expected any time this week. Last year’s results were released on Friday 21st December 2018. 

The Kenya National Examinations Council, KNEC, is expected to handover the results to the Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha who will in turn brief the President before releasing them to the public. The over 699,745 candidates who sat for this year’s exam will be hoping to receive their results before Christmas (which is next week); as promised by Prof Magoha.

As was the case last year, during the KCSE results’ releasing ceremony, the CS is expected to give the names of the most improved students and list of top candidates in the 2019 exams. The CS will also give a breakdown of the candidates per grade.

Other details that may be given by the CS include: An analysis of the candidates who sat the exams (in terms of gender and age among others) and performance in the subjects.

Apart from the 2019 KCSE results, school administrators who have stayed longer in their current stations and those working in their home counties are expecting to be moved to new stations. The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, is in the process of effecting the transfers; otherwise referred to as ‘delocalization’.

The Commission kicked off the delocalization exercise in January, 2018. Other massive deployments would then follow in April, August and December of the same year. Though in April, 2019 the Commission slowed down the transfers as only a handful administrators were moved. In December, 2018, a total of 3,094 teachers were moved.

Sources familiar with the transfers indicate that the Commission now prefers moving the administrators in December as opposed to April and August to minimize disruptions and for smooth transition. The Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, and the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) have been opposed to the massive delocalization exercise; saying it should be executed with a human face.

TSC has already concluded interviews for 7,000 for schools heads and deputies’ positions; with those lacking Masters Degree being locked out.
