Govt agrees to promote 7 500 teachers

06 May 2014, 11:09

Nairobi - The Education Cabinet Secretary, Jacob Kaimenyi has said that the government will spend an estimated KES 4.4 billion this year in hiring of 5 000 staff and promotion of 7 500 teachers.

This is in response to KNUT’s call for the promotion of 53 000 teachers and recruitment of 20 000 staff, which Kaimenyi said is limited by budgetary constraints.

The teacher to pupil ratio in Public Primary Schools currently stands at 49 pupils per teacher, Daily Nation reports.

However, the new deal which was reached after consensus between the CS and KNUT officials, is expected to ease the situation which was aggravated by the introduction of free primary education.
