KNUT urges TSC to release teachers’ appointment letters

08 January 2014, 14:24 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has urged Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to release the appointment letters of new teachers who were recruited in August last year.

KNUT Nyeri County branch chairman, Patrick Karinga has said the new teachers should be deployed to curb the staff shortage in schools.

In his 2014 goodwill message, Karinga urged the TSC to promote teachers who have made efforts to acquire higher education so as to motivate others to advance their studies.

The chairman added that education stakeholders ought to work together to solve the problems facing the education sector.

He said the setbacks faced by public schools could not be left to teachers alone if Nyeri County was to perform well and recover its lost glory.

He lamented that in early years, the County was among the best performers countrywide but currently it is not featured in the top and best performers list.

Karinga blamed the disparities in the level of facilitation in different schools saying they have cost the region its rightful place in the national standings.

He called upon leaders and parents to address the situation as a matter of urgency.

He further stated that the union will not allow intimidation of teachers by politicians citing Mukurwe-ini sub-County where local politicians threaten head teachers and also storm schools that perform poorly.

However, the chairman opined that the elected leaders should work closely with education stakeholders to improve academic standards and acquire modern learning facilities.
