It re­quires us all to sup­port Knec to curb exam cheat­ing

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

With the na­tional ex­am­i­na­tions set to be­gin in two weeks time, ev­ery Kenyan should take part in ef­forts to tame exam cheat­ing and ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. The gov­ern­ment and stake­hold­ers in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor have been brain­storm­ing all through the year to curb exam cheat­ing, which was ev­i­dently threat­en­ing the qual­ity of our ed­u­ca­tion. The Kenyan Na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions Council, hav­ing gone through numer­ous re­form changes, and its Act hav­ing been amended by adding new rules and reg­u­la­tions, it is ex­pected that this year, ex­ams will be free from ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties. How­ever, this will only be achieved if we all pull in the same di­rec­tion. It is only fair that when one no­tices a prob­lem in the dis­tri­bu­tion and ad­min­is­tra­tion of the ex­ams, they im­me­di­ately re­port to the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties. It is only right that peo­ple get what they have worked for not more through du­bi­ous means.
