Nairobi - The Kenya National Examinations will commence on November 1 even as the the Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) commissioners has stated that it will commence a countrywide inspection of schools across the country this Tuesday.
According to sources,the commissioners will also monitor how the performance contracting for principals and teachers is progressing.
The TSC is taking this move to ensure staff are well prepared to handle the forthcoming examinations following the signing of the new performance contracts.
This will be an opportunity for the the principals too to share with officials the challenges facing teachers since they signed the contracts.
Sources have it that the issue of delayed promotion of teachers is yet to be addressed too. However, it is not clear how many teachers have so far been promoted and those whose promotions cases are still pending at the TSC.
It is the prayer of every teacher that the TSC commissioners will address the issue when they visit their institutions.
According to TSC, there has been an improvement in the promotion of teachers after the government allocated enough funds to TSC.
