The teachers employer Teachers Service Commission has come out to condemn the violent act in which a student in Ainamoi Secondary School in Kericho assaulted his Principal. The principal who has been identified as Geoffrey Rono was hit by a form three student who was asked to get school fees.
In a post on the official Facebook page of TSC, the employer has condemned the incidence in the strongest terms.
Teachers have however slammed TSC for what they have termed a slow and untimely response. Although TSC has noted and regretted about the rise in cases of assault against teachers, teachers have blamed their employer for negligence and lack of goodwill.
The Teachers Service Commission now calls on all educational stakeholders to rise up and ensure safety in schools for effective teaching and learning process. TSC has urged all members of the public to participate in eradicating violence in schools.
Although TSC's call is in good faith, much needs to be done to ensure student discipline and non violence in schools. Education stakeholders must reconsider their stand on the ban of corporal punishment in schools.
