There has been a tussle between teachers and their employer. This is after the Teachers Service Commission came up with mandatory refresher courses for all teachers that would take about 30 teachers for a teacher to complete.

Moreover the education unions including Knut have been accused of conspiring with the Teachers Service Commission to push tutors into undertaking mandatory refresher courses. Unions have also been accused of remaining silent over controversial training programme.

It has now been revealed that there are fresh bid to split the Teachers Service Commission. This will be a win for the former Knut secretary - general Wilson Sossion as he continues to fight for teachers despite being out of Knut.

According to details, the Member of Parliament have said that the Teachers Service Commission has become too powerful and is now lording over stakeholders (tutors) in the education sector. The MPs say that the remedy to this problem is to split TSC into two and issue teachers with a new paymaster.
