Teachers Concerned After TSC Directed These School Heads And Principals To Extend Their Services

Teachers are now concerned after the Teachers Service Commission directed these school heads and the principals to extend their services. All teachers are supposed to go for retirement after attaining the age of 60 according to the constitution of Kenya, this gives room for the Teachers Service Commission to employ new young energetic teachers. According to the reliable resources 2500 school heads and principals were likely to retire on 30th June 2021 and 25000 teachers are likely to retire on 30th June 2022.

However the Teachers Service Commission asked the school heads and principals who are likely to retire to extend their services after signing the contract. The Kenya Primary Schools Heads Association (KEPSHA) National Chairman Johnson Nzioka said that the schools heads should sign the contracts voluntarily. Also Kakamega KNUT Secretary Achadius Liyayi said that this is just a cover-up of a mess up pension fund by the the Teachers service Commission, he further asked that some who has closed 60 is tired, what guidance can he offer under the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC)? If you keep recycling old hands, when do you expect the graduate to get employed?. More questions have kept rising up over this issue.
