Employment of other 35,000 teachers
At the same time, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced plans to hire another 35,000 teachers during the year to help ease the pain of the massive shortage of teachers being witnessed around the country.
The teachers’ employer has been in the past few months employing teachers to cope with the 100 percent transition requirement being pushed by the government and the Ministry of Education.
The roll-out of Junior Secondary Schools has also put a strain on the available resources, including teachers and facilities such as classrooms and desks.
TSC has so far hired more than 40,000 teachers with plans to hire many more in the near future. There are also plans by the employer to promote at least 12,000 teachers who have stagnated in their current job groups for a long time.
Nancy Macharia asked for 2.2 billion shillings to promote the teachers.
