To ensure the quality of education, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) chief executive officer asked school principals to avoid hiring people who are not registered with the commission.
According to Dr Nancy Macharia, both public and private schools have continued to employ unregistered teachers under the supervision of the Board of Management (BOM).
She stated that because they are not registered teachers, they are unable to take action against those who abuse students.
She expressed concern about an increase in the number of cases of female teachers sexually abusing their students.
This has paused a challenge, especially when such teachers engage in immoral behavior and members of public expect TSC to act. It is time you stopped employing persons who are not registered as teachers,” she said.
TSC Deputy Director of Staffing Antonia Lentoijoni told teachers in Mombasa that, teachers with TSC-approved qualifications, are the right kind of people to ensure quality education for children.
“These are the people with the ability to offer quality education for our children,” she said.
Lentoijoni stated that the commission has trained 28,000 teachers in the last few years to address the teacher shortage.
She stated that Kenyan children deserved quality education, which is why the commission needed to raise the bar.
