TSC Slams School Heads With Show Cause Over Poor KCPE, KCSE Results


Several primary and secondary school principals have received show cause letters from their employers as result of poor KCPE and KCSE results.


The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) wants school leaders to explain why their schools have had such poor results for the past three years.



“You are required to show cause why disciplinary action should not be taken against you for poor performance in the last three years,” reads a letter to a school in Kuresoi in Nakuru county.


The school heads face a number of disciplinary action including transfer to small remote schools.


“Furnish this office with the measures put in place not later than seven days from the date of this letter,” the letter reads.

“You are required to consolidate data from your regions and submit fifteen days after the release of results for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education 2021,” noted Lentoijoni in the memo.


The memo caused panic among school heads with underperforming schools.

TSC asked its Regional Directors in March to compile and submit data on school performance in National Examinations for the previous three years in their respective regions as soon as the 2021 KCSE examinations were released.





The information also included KCPE and KCSE results for all public primary and secondary schools.





The Commission had asked the field offices to provide the data 15 days following the release of the 2021 KCSE results in a document dated March 11, 2022 and signed by the interim Staffing Director Antonina Lentoijoni.


According to data from the Knec 1,225,507 candidates enrolled for the 2021 KCPE examination while about 831,026 candidates across the country sat for KCSE 2021 examination.
