Good News For TSC Employed Teachers Following The Today's Court Ruling (Opinion)

It is will be a relief to teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission, after the court today ruling out payment of TPD modules by teachers. The TPD were to be rolled out by the commission starting this month. There has been a public outcry from teachers countrywide concerning the TPD modules that are to be introduced by the commission.

The commission had earlier on this month, directed that all teachers registered were to undergo special training for the six TPD modules that are to take a maximum of 30 years with each taking 5 years. Teachers were to pay ksh.6000 as training fee for every year. The court has today ruled out that employees are not supposed to pay for any enhancement program and that it is the responsibility of the employer to do so. This is after the president of Law Society of Kenya Nelson Havi filled a petition condemning the commission for being oppressive to the teachers. It will be good news to teachers who were about to fall into depression, considering the hard economic times if the commission will take up the responsibility of paying for the modules.

On the other side, it is bad news to the employer TSC led by it's Boss Nancy Macharia as they might not be able to implement the program due to financial constraints.
