Private schools learners performed better than their public schools' counterparts in the pioneer class of the new curriculum, results of a national assessment conducted in October shows.

There was a general drop compared to the performance posted one year ago when they were in Grade 3.

A similar assessment conducted in 2019, and KNEC argues that given the assessment administered to the same cohort of learners, the expectation was that performance at all levels would be similar or more comparable.

The sharp decline saw a deep in the number of learners achieving below expectation from 8.99 per cent in the Grade 3 assessment to 24.41 per cent in the current study.

 The national assessment tested 1.07 million learners in Grade 4 for Mathematics, English, Kiswahili and Science subjects.

The ministry of education is now worried over the bad performance saying poor performance could have contributed by irresponsible parents.
