The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has published the names of several teachers who have been sacked after disciplinary action.
The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has been at the forefront in asking the government to hire more teachers as the current numbers are not enough to meet the threshold required to adequately teach children.

Last evening, according to The Star newspaper, 64 teachers were let off by the commission after they received some complaint against the teacher’s code of conduct.
The Teachers Service Commission has said that 64 teachers were released after disciplinary proceedings showed beyond reasonable doubt that they had broken rules.
According to Dr. Nancy Macharia, Chief Executive Officer of the Teachers’ Service Commission, the 64 teachers who have been released can no longer teach in any institution in the country after facing dismissal.
Teachers need to be role models and work within the teaching professional’s code of conduct, just like any other profession, to avoid getting fired from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

If you are accused of engaging in sexuam activities with a student you will face disciplinary action from the County Education Office and you will be unregistered from service if found guilty.

Teachers should act as role models for students so that when teachers get involved in physical fight it destroys the image of the school. If teachers join the fight they will lose their jobs.

Schools are meant to create national unity and equality between teachers and students so racial discrimination is against the TSC code of conduct.

Teachers are encouraged to maintain good working relations within the school and follow all prescribed rules and regulations from their employers to protect themselves from problems.
