Roots FM News Exclusive
Invigilators who worked during the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) examinations in March and April of 2019 are lamenting that they are yet to be paid.
Reports reaching Roots FM News are that invigilators and supervisors of the Grades 4,5 and 6 exams in Region 1 are still awaiting a fulsome response regarding the delay in payment.
One anonymous invigilator, said they were promised by the Education Ministry before the exams, that they would receive early payment for their service.
He was speaking on our Mek Wi Talk Programme on Tuesday.
He said when they sought a response from the Ministry, they could not address the issue.
The invigilator warned that a boycott of the exams this year may be looming, if there are no payments before the exams.
Meanwhile, Grade 4 primary school students who are preparing to transition to secondary level education will sit their component of the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) on Thursday, June 25 and Friday, June 26, 2020, in Language Arts and Mathematics Performance Tasks.
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information has issued a bulletin informing that these Grade Four students will sit a Performance Task assessment in Mathematics and a Performance Task assessment in Language Arts.
And Roots FM News is yet to receive a response to an email sent to the Ministry on January 9 regarding the issue.
