Headteachers have been ordered to ensure pupils do not repeat classes.
Teachers Service Commission chairperson Lydia Nzomo said although teachers have been put on notice over class repetition some children are still made to repeat classes.
“A child should complete one class and go to the next. We must offer quality education for all our children,” Dr Nzomo said.
While speaking during the ongoing primary school headteachers annual conference in Mombasa, Dr Nzomo assured the teachers that they will not be demoted following the government directive that management of primary and secondary schools sharing a compound will be merged.
“You won’t be demoted from a head teacher to a classroom teacher, we have protected you from all that, just do your work, ” Dr Nzomo said.
