Junior secondary school education has been halted for a week now. This is because teachers’ employers (TSC) delayed posting the freshly hired 30,000 teachers.
The good news is that the teacher service commission responded quickly to complaints by deploying over 30,000 teachers to public junior secondary schools.
Most educational stakeholders are concerned about whether increasing the number of teachers employed will help to ease the teacher shortage and hence aid in the seamless implementation of the CBC curriculum.
Last week, grade seven students returned to school, and the education ministry has done everything possible to ensure that all students and teachers settle in properly.
Learning has been halted for a week as a result of TSC’s failure to deploy teachers.
Reporting Dates for newly hired JSS teachers
Following the posting of more than 30,000 teachers to junior public schools by TSC on Monday, February 6, 2023, the issue of inadequate learning will be solved.
Each county received teachers in proportion to the number of 7th grade classes available.
TSC just finished a recruitment operation in which it hired 9,000 permanent teachers and 21,550 interns.
