New strategy will seal exam cheating loophooles – Matiang’i
The government has formulated a new strategy to seal loopholes to avoid cheating in national exams.
Education CS Fred Matiang’i on Monday said the structure includes a working plan that involves all key government agencies and ministries. They include the Education and Interior ministries, heads of schools and the Teachers Service Commission.
The CS was at the Voi education offic- es at 5.30 am to witness the opening of the examination store. He was accompanied by TSC chief executive Nancy Macharia. “We are setting standards for future trends,” she said.
Matiang’i said there will be close coordination with other agencies to ensure maximum security of examination materials from their storage place to the exam centres.
He said the government is focussed on maintaining the integrity of all future national exams.
Matiang’i assured parents of credible results for this year’s exams.
“The system we have created is not based on personalities but on existing government structures that will be there long after individuals are gone. The future success will not depend on people, but the systems we are putting in place,” he said.
