Teachers in Kenya are under the national government and are employed by the Teachers Service Commission. Lately the two bodies representing teachers i.e KNUT and KUPPET have witnessed major reshuffling, this is after key learders such as Wilson Sossion and who kept the union spirit resigned. The two bodies seem to have acted out of pressure to accept the new demands from the employer body.
Teachers will now be forced to go back to school under their own scheme and schedule and redo a mandatory five year period modules. In rather an Orthodox means the employer body stated yesterday that they will be forced to take strict action towards teachers who fail to do the mandatory course. A failure to succeed in the modules will dictate a cancellation of the teacher from the teachers register.
This has been received with mixed reactions citing TSC as an employer body currently being used to demean teachers. In some cases TSC seem to be working hard to hinder teacher promotion to upper job groups. Selectively setting some specific Universities where the teachers will be forced to take the module courses is also not acceptable. Teachers are scattered all over the country and would appreciate if the courses are scheduled to be online. The new plan is currently the heated topic of discussion from teacher and stakeholders in the education sector as the date for commencement of implementation is set to be declared soon.
