As schools countrywide reopened for term 1 on Monday, parents of Tinet primary school in Eldama Ravine, Baringo County stormed the institution in protest over poor performance.
 

The parents, who were agitated by the low marks posted by learners in the 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams locked the school gate the head teacher’s office and staffroom on Monday morning.

In the 2023 KCPE exams, over 32 candidates scored between 100 and 190 marks and another 20 got less than 250.

Speaking at institution, the over 300 parents said they won’t allow their children to report to the school unless the head teacher (Judy Sang) who reported to the school is transferred.

They claim to have lodged complaints in the county education offices, but no action has been taken.

The parents also lamented that school property including maize, cows and milk are secretly sold.

Efforts by Citizen Digital to contact sub-county director of Education David Kipsaat and the headteacher Judy Sang failed as all calls went unanswered.

At press time, no education official had turned up at the institution.
