Learning back to normal after suspension of teachers strike

06 October 2015, 09:25 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Learning is back to normal in public schools after the end of the 5 week teachers strike on Monday.

A spot-check by News24 in several Nairobi public primary and secondary schools showed teachers back to class and learning normal.

Teachers were seen busy, especially with exam candidates who will sit for their national examinations in the coming month.

And despite not getting their 50/60% pay-rise, teachers were in buoyant mood regardless.

" I am happy to be back and to concentrate on ensuring that candidate are well prepared for the exams," a teacher at Nairobi's Moi Avenue Primary School that did not want to be named told News24.

Several school principals also told News24 that teachers had reported to duty as normal.

" We have teachers in class. All is good," they stated.

Some however called on the government to extend the time frame for exams to start, to hand them some more time to deal with students.

" We need some more time since we have missed 5 weeks," some stated.

The government however, is adamant that the exams will stay as normal as changing it will affect several facets of the school timetable.

Teachers say that will resume their strike in 90 days if the government does not pay them their increase, while the government says that it has no money to do so and teachers must respect institutions set out to deal with the public wage structure.

" Teachers must respect bodies such as the Salaries and Remuneration Commission SRC, which are mandated to deal with such matters," Deputy President William Ruto says.
