Rankings of students and schools in national examinations abolished
The Ministry of Education has abolished the ranking of students according to their performance in KCPE and KCSE examinations.
Schools will also not be ranked in the new rule that was contained in a circular signed by Principal Secretary Dr. Belio Kipsang and sent to all county directors of education, sub-county education officers and principals of public secondary schools.
“There will be regular review and recasting of school performance merit measuring and therefore ranking of schools and students on the basis of national examinations results is discontinued with immediate effect,” a statement from the Education Ministry states.
The rules are part of a series of measures that the Ministry has issued to guide the management of Secondary Schools.
The circular provides guidance on registrations of new schools, management of school finances, procurement of goods and services, and on recruitment of non-teaching staff.
