Good News to Headteachers Lacking Degrees as KNUT Says This
Good News to Headteachers Lacking Degrees as KNUT Says This. The idea of the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform (PWPER) has been demonstrated to be unpopular with the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT). According to the idea, headteachers without degrees would be demoted.
Collins Oyuu, secretary of the KNUT, stated yesterday in Mombasa that the union is prepared to assist headteachers in pursuing degrees.
Oyuu denied allegations that many school administrators lack a college degree. He said that many professors hold university degrees and are thus qualified to lead the school.
He argued, however, that teachers who have not finished their studies should be allowed more time to do so.
The secretary disproved the notion that primary school administrators are not college graduates. He claimed that because demotions of teachers are the worst kind of unfair labor practices and won’t be tolerated, the union won’t watch them happen.
In addition, Oyuu agreed with the task force’s recommendation for a single complex school with a headmaster overseeing all pre-primary, primary, and junior secondary students.
Additionally, KNUT wants the teachers service commission (TSC) to take control of pre-primary teachers’ employment, compensation, and quality.
The TSC is requesting that counties hand over their responsibility for paying early childhood education (ECE) instructors to them. This is in line with a suggestion made by the task force.
The task force suggested that the intergovernmental relations act be amended by parliament since it will be a sure step in the right direction.
Teachers will benefit from this since they will be centrally managed. Additionally, they can count on a commission to stand up for them at all times.
