INTERN TEACHERS TO BE SACKED TSC TREATENS

INTERN TEACHERS TO BE SACKED TSC TREATENS

The teachers’ employer has now threatened to sack intern teachers who have failed to report to work since schools reopened for the second term.

Appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee, TSC Legal Affairs director Cavin Anyuor said the disciplinary action will be based on attendance records collected by school heads. He said the records will be received at the TSC head office on Friday, May 17.

The development comes days after intern teachers vowed to stay put even as their employer directed them to go back to class. Emboldened by support from the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet), the teachers announced elaborate plans to intensify their demonstration starting next week.

Daniel Murithi, secretary-general of the Kenya Junior Secondary Teachers Association, said communication from TSC urging them to resume work will not sway their resolve.

This comes after a faction of the nearly 60,000 intern teachers on Monday boycotted teaching when schools reopened for second term demanding enhanced pay and conversion of their intern contracts to permanent and pensionable.
