In Summary
  • TSC is set to transfers principals, their deputies and head teachers next week ahead of school re-opening in January.

A teacher’s union has asked the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to conduct transfer of teachers with a human face.

Speaking ahead of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) annual delegates conference in Kitui, Secretary-General Akelo Misori said they support the transfers. He however, said TSC should consider the age, marital status, health conditions and other social concerns of the teachers.

Mr Misori observed that last year, the transfers disrupted lives of many teachers.
