Jubillee MP tells teachers to ignore proposed performance contracts

24 December 2015, 10:03 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - A Jubilee coalition legislator has told teachers not to sign the proposed performance contracts from next year as directed by the Education ministry.

Lugari MP, Ayub Savula who claimed that the performance contracts are meant to intimidate them, adding that teachers' performance is determined by students' good performance in examinations.

"Teachers should ignore the Ministry of Education demand that they should sign performance contracts. Tear those papers and throw them away when given to sign," he said.

"Teachers are poorly paid and mistreated public servants. Asking them to sign performance contracts is another way of oppressing them because their salary increment by the government has not been implemented," he added.

The proposal by Education ministry for teachers to sign performance contracts has drawn mixed reactions among MPs, where some are in support while others are opposed to it.

For instance, the National Assembly Education committee chairperson, Sabina Chege welcomed the proposal saying it will give the government value for the money it spends for teachers' salaries and help improve students' performance.

Ugunja MP, Opiyo Wandayi opposed the proposal saying it was uncalled for and is aimed at undermining teachers.
