President Uhuru has signed into law the Kenya National Examination Council amendment Bill allowing back ranking of schools after the national exams.
As it used to be, students will be able to know how their schools performed best and worst in both KCPE and KCSE and also get a mention in the local media.
According to experts in the academinc sector, ranking has been helpful especially to private schools, as they get to be mentioned and given what they deserve for their hard work.
Ranking was banned after the ministry argued that there was an increase in cheating as many schools were after the ranks.
The signed bill was brought forward by Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa and also requires that KNEC develops a structured way to ensure schools are ranked fairly.
