TSC fires 129 teachers for failing to show up for work.
Teachers in North Eastern Kenya have recently had to deal with a variety of difficulties, such as insecurity, poor infrastructure, and insufficient school supplies.
Many educators are reluctant to work in the area as a result of these problems, which have drastically decreased the quality of education there.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has taken action to solve the problems and improve the local educational system in response to these difficulties.
Despite the TSC’s efforts, there have been cases where teachers in North Eastern have refused to report to the schools to which they have been assigned, leading to the TSC’s interdiction of them.
The TSC recently fired 129 instructors as a result of their unwillingness to work at North Eastern.
Various parties have been divided on this measure, with some supporting it and others seeing it as an intrusion on teachers’ rights.
It is imperative to look into the causes of these instructors’ opposition to their postings as well as the consequences of their behavior.
The security situation in North Eastern, which is characterized by regular attacks from terrorist groups and places teachers in a high-risk area, is one of the main causes of their hesitation.
The difficulties educators encounter are further exacerbated by the area’s poor infrastructure, inadequate housing, and lack of essential services.
Teachers who are inexperienced with the regional culture and customs may have difficulties due to the distinctive cultural and social dynamics in North Eastern, which stand out significantly from other parts of the nation.
Many teachers struggle to adjust to this new environment and feel alone, which affects their motivation and performance.
Although severe and abrupt, the TSC’s decision to fire these 129 teachers is considered as an essential precaution.
No matter where they live, all children have the right to a high-quality education since it is a fundamental human right.
The TSC is in charge of making sure that North Eastern schools have enough staff to suit the area’s educational demands. These educators disregarded their duties and denied children’s right to an education by refusing to come to work.
