In the month of September, Teachers Service Commission (TSC) produced a circular demanding teachers to go back to school for a training. This training; Teachers Professional Development (TPD) is meant to take 30 years. Teachers are expected to study six modules each costing Ksh 6,000 for five years.
According to TSC,TPD is aimed to make teachers be familiar with the new curriculum; Competence Based Curriculum (CBC). Bearing in mind that in the year 2023 Kenya shall have junior secondary schools according to the new curriculum, both primary and secondary teachers should be well conversed with the same for better teaching. This will also prevent confusion in classes.
Nevertheless, when TSC gave out this circular, majority of teachers were against it. They claimed that it's too expensive for them to cater for. Last week,TSC said that only 20,000 teachers have registered for the same. This is a very small number for Kenya has millions of teachers.
Following this,TSC has said that they are going to slash teacher's annual leave allowance to cater for TPD training. Do you support this decision? Is it fair to do this? Give your view.
