TSC Transfers 14,613 Teachers To Their Home Counties
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has approved the relocation of 14,613 teachers to their home counties, ending the agency’s delocalization policy.
Only 120 teachers’ requests for transfer were rejected because TSC has not yet found a place.
When TSC opened the window, 14,733 teachers from all over the country applied for transfer to their district.
According to a memo seen by the media, TSC will continue to seek matches for pending transfers before approving the remaining requests.
“All teachers and deputy teachers report on January 23, and the principal reports on January 16,” he said.
TSC Transfers 14,613 Teachers To Their Home Counties.
According to the numbers, 226 school principals, 189 vice principals, and 1,948 primary school principals have been transferred to their respective districts.
1,316 secondary teachers and 10,934 primary teachers will be transferred.
The council said that TSC regional heads will be responsible for transfers in their respective regions.
The transfer of teachers from one area to another will be managed by the commission’s central office.
The purpose of this memo is to get permission to send the list of teachers to the regional headquarters and the memo to the regional headquarters.
This is intended to allow teachers to change workstations within a specified period of time.
According to the agreement, 1,219 teachers will be transferred to the region, and another 2,594 teachers will be transferred to the region.
Another message sent to the district head asked the principal to submit or submit a report by February 10.
“Ensure that all principals are assigned and supervised by the District TSC Director and the MOE,” the letter said.
The desegregation program has sparked protests among teachers and politicians, and Kenya’s Kwanzaa government has vowed to end it.
President William Ruto’s administration has described the program as harsh and aimed at destroying families.
The National Assembly’s subcommittee on education and research has called for the approval of all teacher transfers from the TSC.
On January 15, Chairman of the Education Committee Julius Melly said that information about the transfer was needed.
Until January 31, any teacher who wants to reverse delocalization must be disciplined,” he said.
The committee’s deputy chairman, Malulu Injendi, said TSC chairman Jamleck Muturi did not seem to know why delocalisation was cancelled.
“I think we have to work with the schedule now. We give this panel by January to complete all 14,000 jobs,” he said.
The TSC legal officer asked if the transfer could be made to anyone, but the MP denied the request.
“You’re going to hire over 30,000 teachers, so you have no excuse,” Mellie said.
The decentralization policy was scrapped after MPs pressed for a review of the TSC.
On November 3, Parliament passed a resolution introduced by Lurambi MP Titus Khamala.
Khamala put forward a proposal to end the practice of sacking teachers.
This means that if TSC transfers teachers, they must be sent to another school in their work zone.
