Kenya: Kitui KNUT Defends Teachers

Kenya National Union of Teachers Kitui county has said primary school teachers should not be blamed for poor performance in KCPE examinations. Addressing journalists in his Mwingi office yesterday, branch secretary Jonathan Mutambu said the root cause of poor performance should be solved before it gets out of hand.

He said major education players like county education director Pascal Makite, the Ministry of Education and the Teachers Service Commission director should be involved in finding a solution. Mutambu said they want to discuss the worrying trend and prescribe the best remedy. He said he will not blame public school teachers before they establish where the problem is.
