      In Summary

      • Performance in English dips for the third year in a row due to the growing influence of sheng


      Candidates performed better in sciences and Kiswahili in last year’s Form Four examinations.
      Mathematics, Physics and Biology were among the 16 subjects whose performance also improved compared to 13 subjects in 2010.
      Education Minister Sam Ongeri (pictured) attributed the improved performance in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) to a task force he appointed in 2009 to investigate the causes of poor performance in Mathematics and sciences.
      “The improved performance is partly as a result of the interventions that have been undertaken as a result of recommendations of this report,” he said of the task force chaired by Education secretary George Godia.
      Chemistry and English, however, continued to register poor performance.
      Prof Ongeri asked the Quality Assurance and Standards director Enos Oyaya to look into the matter.
      “I am particularly disturbed by the drop in performance in English, which has been on a downward trend for the last three years,” he said.
      He attributed the poor performance to the speaking of sheng — a language spoken by urban youth, which derives its vocabulary from English and Kiswahili.

      MY TAKE:Kuna cha kujifunza apa kutoka kwa hawa watani zetu!Maana uku kwetu masomo ya sciences ni issue

      Waafrika hatuna mila ya kujifunza kutokana na makosa yetu au ya wenzetu; labda kufanya vibaya tunaiga kwa urahisi! Ingekuwa ni kujifunza mbinu za kuiba kura tungeiga haraka sana! Hili la maendeleo utaambiwa mazingira yao ni tofauti!
