I read in the Daily Nation that agood number of" uneducated Kenyans including,ithink 10% of women have build better permanent houses that graduates. If this is anything to go by,then grade E or F shouldn't spell disaster.And of course one could argue that the uneducated could still be "smart" just because they have no scholastic achievement should not discount them from being productive and innovative. Most Jua Kali artisans can attest to this...
E must be outlawed. After four years and big money gone they should give 30pc for participation
946 out of 1146 students with A are from Kisii.
Matiangi was a kisii.
& Machogu is a Kisii.
They are cheating.
Our system is rotten or broken at the very least! The vast majority of our children are failing!!! And is that something to be proud of or celebrate for?!???!
What is the future of someone with grade E in such a highly competitive country like Kenya.
