JSS Teachers Requests TSC To Hire More Teachers
JSS Teachers Requests TSC To Hire More Teachers. Due to the overwhelming workload that the existing small staff is bearing, instructors at Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) in Bungoma are requesting that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) send more teachers to their institutions.
A JSS teacher from the Kimilili constituency, who wished to remain unnamed, told The Star in an interview on Thursday that the government had committed to give all the resources required to support JSS education.
Nevertheless, when he was transferred to his present school, he discovered nothing to use as a starting point, including some of the necessary textbooks for social studies and Christian religious education.
According to the JSS teacher, if the government is serious about enhancing JSS education, it must hire and place teachers who are experts in those fields. This would allow the pupils to receive high-quality education while simultaneously lessening the workload for the current teachers.
The National Foundation for the Disabled of Kenya trustee David Musila has urged the TSC to send additional teachers to special schools.
Musila urged other groups to assist special schools while speaking during the opening of three classroom buildings worth Sh2.5 million at Namawanga Special School in Bungoma on Wednesday.
The director of Kaptola Special School in Mt. Elgon, Martin Towet, commended the Ministry of Education, interested parties, and TSC for helping the area acquire a special school. In addition, Towet pleaded with sponsors to support the institution’s transition to boarding.
A major step in ensuring that pupils receive high-quality education and that teachers are not overburdened with work is the posting of specialist teachers to schools.
In order for students with special needs to receive the instruction and assistance they need to reach their full potential, support for special schools is also essential.
