Unfortunately, just like previous years the Council has not factored in payment for Deputy Head Teachers and Deputy Principals, despite the fact that they will be present during the examination period as assistant Centre Managers.

Also walking home empty handed are teachers handling science subjects who will be required to prepare and administer practicals during the KCSE examinations.
