Some schools have faced acute teacher shortages.This has forced the teachers to leave some lessons untaught.Students from Sigor Day secondary school have hit the headlines catching TSC unaware with their demands.The students staged a demonstration in demand for teachers.This is a rare show from students in schools.
The students have lamented that the teachers employer has refused to post teachers in their school despite repeated requests by the parents and the school Board of Management.TSC recently issued posting letters to new teachers who have reported to their new schools but did not employ teachers in this school.What next for the Commission after this demand by students themselves?The complain by the students is coming at a time when President Kenyatta has announced building of 10,000 schools in preparation for the double transition in 2023.The teachers shortages are expected to bite more since millions of learners are expected to go to secondary schools.All in all,TSC will look into this.
