University lectures have also threatened to go on strike on Wednesday over failure by the government to implement the 2013-2017 CBA.
Lectures’ strikes affected learning at the 33 public universities and their constituent colleges for a large part of this year.
During the January-April semester, students did not go for classes for two months due to a strike. During the May-August semester, the lecturers were on strike from July 3 to 18.
KCSE and KCPE EXAMINATIONS
The third term is the most crucial in the school calendar, as Standard Eight and Form Four candidates sit their national exams.
The tests are expected to start in early October for secondary schools and late October for primary schools.
On Sunday, various parents who spoke to the Nation said the government should take measures to ensure teachers and lectures do not go on strike.
Mr Jones Nderitu, a parent, said the strike threats are causing panic among Standard Eight and Form Four candidates given the exams they are facing. “This is the time for teachers to closely monitor and guide students and prepare them for exams, but when they go on strike, it will adversely affect the children,” he said.
Another parent, Ms Mary Owino, said teachers should drop their plans to boycott work to allow candidates to write the national exams without disruptions.
