Education stakeholders in Busia set to meet over poor KCSE performances

Busia Senator Amos Wako

Education stakeholders in Busia County are set to have a sit down and discuss the poor performances in last year’s KCSE. Speaking to the press, Busia Senator Amos Wako decried the poor performances registered by schools in Busia County, saying he has talked to the chairman of the County Education Board Prof. John Shiundu and a meeting with education stakeholders is scheduled for end of January.

He said he was very embarrassed after no student from the County scored a straight A. “I’m saying so because students from Busia in other Counties are top in those Counties,” he said, noting that students from the County preformed well in other regions, “So why should they be top there and in their own County, we don’t have straight As?” he posed.

KCSE results in Busia County indicated that Butula Boys High School led the way with a mean score of 6.77, Sigalame Boys High School had a mean score of 6.65, Nambale Boys had a mean score of 6.201, S.A Kolanya Girls Secondary school had a mean score of 6.084, Lwanya Girls Secondary School had a mean score of 5.6, closing the top five schools.
