Teachers' Service Commission in Kenya is mandated with the staffing and welfare of teachers. The Teachers' employer in Kenya has been coming with policies that scare its employees. There were rumours doing rounds that teachers would be required to put on specific attire in school. It caused jitters among the teachers as TSC can think up anything and force it as a policy. Although commissions are meant to enjoy independence, TSC has gone way too far.
After coming up with the Teacher Development Modules to be undertaken for thirty years, this commission will never stop at that. Now that it has completely killed the unions literally, it is comfortable to dish out controversial and whimsical policies. The parliament is the only avenue that csn rescue teachers from the employer-turned monster.
There are plans to clip some functions from TSC as it has become too powerful. The unions have since remained silent even after the controversial development modules. Dictatorship is much evident with TSC as once you paralyse the systems that keep you in check, you are aiming at the centralised power which translates to dictatorship.
The politicians are going around funerals and public fora speaking harshly against TSC but they do not back it up with policies in parliament. The education committees in both the parliament and the senate are seated comfortably enjoying the taxpayer's sweat while the teacher, who happens to be paying tax, is suffering.
