The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has announced that it will reinstate all teachers who have submitted petitions.
Speaking before the education committee, TSC chairman Jamleck Muturi said 14,733 teachers want to transfer money to rural areas. This is after the KPK resolved the desegregation policy that placed teachers in schools outside the rural community.
“As a council, we will look to solve all the problems of teachers and we will take into account their needs as well as the constitutional mandate of the commission to ensure that schools have teachers,” Muturi said.
He said most teachers want employers to influence their work because of their health, family relationships and old age.
The TSC has also been tasked with explaining why recruitment discriminates against applicants over 45.
Earlier, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) locked those above 45 years of age in the selection criteria.
In his response, TSC chairman Jamleck Muturi assured those who were not present that they would be prioritized in the exercise in response to questions from Malawa MP Malulu Injendi.
“We will consider the teacher’s graduation time and class strength during the recruitment process. “We even invite teachers who are 58 years old to apply so that they can serve on the commission until retirement age,” he said.
He added: “The guidelines are drawn up to ensure transparency, so priority is given to early graduates.”
However, the Supreme Court ruled that the age limit was unconstitutional, saying the job favored young graduates. The move opens the door for thousands of people who are unemployed or otherwise working in the private sector before the age of interest.
Members of the National Assembly asked for assurances after investigating whether there was discrimination based on age or school year.
