TSC Responds to Mass Transfer of Teachers
The Teachers Service Commission termed a letter making rounds on the social media claiming that there is mass transfer of headteachers as fake.
In a statement dated Thursday, June 2, the teacher’s employer denied carrying out any transfers, terming the list as fake.
The list indicated that the teachers’ employer had transferred headteachers during the half-term break last week.
The statement by the Commission came after teachers raised concerns over the list even as some tutors indicated that they had not received official letters from their employer.
Nonetheless, some tutors also lamented over the time the Commission was taking to effect some of the transfers that had been approved.
In April, through a circular, TSC boss, Nancy Macharia, directed the regional education officers to audit the distribution of teachers in schools over concerns that some schools had limited teachers.
“Any arising movements conducted in the local areas must have a human face and must be well discussed with all relevant offices to ensure equity for all of our learners in line with existing staffing norms. If unchecked, this will adversely impact learning outcomes in our learning institutions,” Macharia directed.
