Top schools in counties in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination have been revealed. Details of the top performers in each of the 47 counties came to light as debate raged on the re-introduction of performance ranking of schools and candidates.

The results highlighted the inequality in education standards, reports the Standard, where the top school in Tana River County, Mau Mau Memorial Girls Secondary School, had a mean score of 4.42. By comparison, the overall nationwide champions, Moi High School Kabarak (Nakuru), recorded 11.66.

The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) results released by Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i did not have a merit list of schools and candidates. These details emerged after KNEC released statistics specific to schools last week. “Head teachers and principals can now view and download their respective 2015 KCSE performance statistics on the Knec website. The statistics include a performance index and centre mean,” read a statement released on March 9 by Knec Head of Communication Frida Were.
