TSC Fires over 50 Teachers

Date:

The teachers service commission has sacked over 50 teachers from across the country over various reasons, among them absenteeism, sexual offenses, duty desertion and many others. The first batch of teachers to go home includes some fifty two teachers.
According to the TSC chief executive officer Nancy Macharia,  the teachers were kicked from the national register in accordance with Section 30 (1) (e) of the Teachers Service Commission Act.
“A teacher whose name has been removed from the register shall cease to be a teacher with effect from the date of such removal,” the gazette notice dated May 13 said. In the deregistration of the teachers, the TSC bans all affected teachers from ever teaching again.
“Any person who teaches or assists in teaching in any school shall be guilty of an offense and liable to a fine not exceeding Sh. 5,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, or to both,” the TSC says. In the same vein, if a school employs someone who is not a registered teacher, the owner shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine of not less than Sh. 100,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or to both.
The affected teachers can however appeal their removal from the Teaching service as they were given a 28 days appeal period.
“Any appeal should be submitted in writing, stating the grounds of appeal. If on the expiry of 28 days from the date of this notice, no appeal has been made to the Appeals Tribunal, or if an appeal to the Appeals Tribunal is withdrawn or dismissed, your name will forthwith be removed from the register of teachers,” the TSC Act says.
This comes at a time Covid-19 situation continues to disrupt the smooth operations in schools putting teachers at a crossroad.
Recently TSC conducted a research on the level of teacher preparedness to manage Covid-19 during full school resumption and how teachers are ready to support learners and their peers in adherence to Covid-19 measures.
The findings revealed that a lot needs to be done to support both learners and teachers for school calendar and learning should carry on smoothly in school.
