Teacher's Body Disappointed With TSC's Plan To Employ 14000 Teachers, Says That's A Small Number

One of the teachers' unions has expressed its dissatisfaction and unhappiness with the teachers' employer after the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) announced its 'massive' plan to employ fourteen thousand teachers. Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has blasted TSC's plan for what it termed as a drop in the ocean.

According to the teachers union body, there is a lot of stagnation of unemployed teachers thus the Teachers Service Commission should do more than that. Every year there is always a group of qualified graduates teachers who pour into the job market to scramble for the few vacancies in both private and public schools. This has always created an unemployment crisis since the chances available are always too negligible to accommodate all graduates.

The inception of Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) created a further shortage of teachers since the new curriculum requires more personnel for its implementation. The President had therefore promised to fill the shortage by employing more teachers yearly.
