Parents eject teachers from school over poor performance

Parents at Miguye Primary School yesterday stormed into the school and ejected teachers over claims of poor performance. The parents, who accessed the school compound by 9am, caused teachers to scamper for safety as they searched for the school’s head teacher, John Akuom, who was forced to lock himself in his office. The irate parents who accused Mr Akuom of poor performance stormed his office threatening to break the door and it took the intervention of Chief John Adel to restore sanity. The school performed dismally in the 2014 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations with a mean grade of 194 marks and 19 out of the 27 candidates scoring below 200 marks.
