40 more Teachers Deregistered in March 2020 by TSC: Below is a complete list of all teachers Deregistered by the Teachers Service Commission as of March 2020 and a list of TSC offenses that could land teachers in trouble
In the year 2020, disregard for the TSC code of conduct and regulations has seen 40 more teachers exit service prematurely.
Normally, a teacher is supposed to serve the Commission until s/he exits service either by choice for instance if they have found greener pastures, through natural attrition (death) or attainment of the mandatory retirement age-60 years.
However, the Commission has been dismissing and blacklisting teachers who either knowingly or unknowingly violate the TSC code of conduct and regulations that govern the behavior of TSC employees.
The code of conduct clearly stipulates how a teacher is expected to behave in and out of the school set up.
It also highlights forms of misdemeanor that are considered offensive by TSC and the punishment to be meted out in case a teacher or any other TSC employee commits it.
Below is a complete list of Deregistered teachers as of March 2020:

TSC LIST OF OFFENCES
7 SIMPLE MISTAKES TEACHERS MAKE THAT CAN LEAD TO AN INTERDICTION OR DISMISSAL BY THE TEACHERS SERVICE COMMISSION
1. Having carnal knowledge with learners (Immorality)
Adolescents can be very tempting but teachers should be made aware of the fact that any child who is still wearing a school uniform is not ready for “deflowering.”
Some people may argue that some girls or boys have attained the minimum legal age hence they should be considered and treated like grown-ups.
Do not forget that whenever TSC is handling any CK cases involving teachers, it is the learner’s word against you. It is therefore advisable to keep off learners whether they consent to your ‘pleas’ or not.
Acts considered to be part of immoral behavior by TSC teachers include: having sexual intercourse with learners, sexual harassment, flirtation, exposing learners to pornographic materials, lesbianism, homosexuality/ sodomy and having love relationships with learners.
2. Teacher’s professional misconduct
Acts classified under professional misconduct include chronic absenteeism, desertion of duty, and negligence of duty.
Desertion of duty refers to when a TSC employed teacher absents himself or herself for 14 continuous days (without official written permission from the head or deputy’s head).
This offense also includes failure to report back to school for reposting after the expiry of a TSC teacher’s study leave, failure to report to your new station, or going for a study leave without being officially released.
Chronic absenteeism, on the other hand, refers to when a TSC employed teacher displays persistent or recurrent absence or lateness for duty.
Lastly, negligence of duty is a simple offense that can easily land a TSC employed teacher in trouble.
It involves the following: Deliberately neglecting any duty assigned or performing it carelessly, failing to teach all lessons on your time table, lack of professional documents such as lesson plans, schemes, and records of work, awarding undeserved grades to learners, failing to turn up for your duty as a T.O. D or M.O.D, failing to attend official school meetings and assemblies and failure to accompany students during official functions.
3. Conviction of a criminal offense
A TSC teacher can get interdicted if s/ he is found guilty (convicted) of a criminal offense, jailed, or given a non-custodial sentence since this renders the teacher in question “unfit” to continue serving as a teacher.
4. Infamous conduct in any professional respect
Infamous conduct by TSC teachers includes drunkenness or any form of intoxication during official TSC working hours, fighting in public or showing violence.
Insubordination can be simplified to mean disobedience/ undermining authority. Therefore, any act insinuating that a TSC employed teacher is undermining authority such as the head of a school, sub-county director or county director may lead to interdiction or dismissal by the TSC.
6. Forgery or impersonation (bribery and corruption)
If a TSC teacher provides fake signatures or stamps or obtains certificates and gets registered through fraudulent means then s/ he will be eligible for interdiction or dismissal.
Teachers who also engage in exam malpractices or misrepresent information can get interdicted or dismissed.
7. Embezzlement/ mismanagement/ misappropriation of school funds
Any TSC employed teacher should shun away from dipping his or her hands in the wrong cooking jar especially where school funds are involved.
Embezzlement refers to the fraudulent conversion of public funds and property into personal use.
Misappropriation, on the other hand, is the use of public funds for unauthorized/ wrong purposes.
Mismanagement is the handling of public funds or property in a manner likely to cause loss to the school.
