Appearing before the Parliamentary Committee, TSC CEO Nancy Macharia said the decision was arrived at after deliberations on how the Commission can stop mass transfers of teachers previously posted to work in hardship areas to less adverse regions.
As a result of these mass transfers of teachers, learning is constantly disrupted and schools remain understaffed despite the government’s efforts to improve the Teacher: learner ratio.
Henceforth, the Teachers Service Commission, TSC shall give priority to teachers who hail from these hardship regions irrespective of their Year of Graduation, the main parameter used to score TSC candidates.
TSC Boss further added that there have been numerous instances where teachers from less volatile areas have been forced to flee to safer areas following inter-clan wars.
Under such circumstances, the TSC cannot force them to work in these highly-volatile regions.
This is why locals will be given priority since they know how to manoeuvre in such instances.
The TSC’s decision was propelled by constant complaints from Turkana Members of Parliament who accused the Teachers Service Commission of ignoring locals during the recruitment process.
