BOM teachers are soon smiling all the way to the Bank if their cries are heard.
Akello Misori alone has been the voice of teachers in Kenya for quite some time now. Misori who is currently serving as the General Secretary of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET).
The teachers serving in the Board of Management (BOM) are being abused for years and they get peanuts as payment in spite of hard work in their respective schools.
In some schools, especially primary schools, these teachers are paid 5,000 shillings or less, while their counterparts in secondary schools are paid less than 10,000 shillings.
There is now a sigh of relief for these teachers after Akello Misori, general secretary of the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers, announced that discussions are on to ensure that these teachers get good share for the hard work they do in schools.
According to Misori, discussions will see that teachers serving on the Board of Management in primary schools be paid at least 10,000 shillings, while their counterparts serving in secondary schools should be paid a minimum salary of 15,000 per month.
This is received as good news for this category of teachers who are disappointed in their job career especially those who are not on internship contract.
