According to TSC, the school head teachers will have an additional managerial task that calls for an additional task, and the Commission is planning to entice the heads with promotions and better pay for the Grade 7 assignment

The primary school heads will manage both their primary schools and the junior secondary school section which will be domiciled inside their current schools. TSC said, Grade 7 learners who will remain in primary schools in January, will still be under their school headteacher.

TSC Chairperson Jamleck Muturi and TSC head of legal affairs Cavin Anyuor while appearing before the Education Committee in Parliament said the junior secondary school will still be under primary school management.

Kitutu Masaba MP Clive Gisairo had inquired how teachers will run the two categories separately.

Who will be the administrator, will they have different management in the same school, or how will that be done?” he said. Anyuor responded by saying Grade 7 will still be managed under primary schools.

β€œAs it stands now the administrator will still remain the head teacher of that primary until junior secondary takes off,” he said.

When the head teachers met in Mombasa for their 18th Kenya Primary School Heads Association (Kepsha) they called for increased capitation for schools. Johnson Nzioka, the chair of Kepsha said the cost of running a primary school with 400 pupils comes to about Sh3 million per year.

He told the 18th Kepsha annual conference at the Sheikh Zayed Children Welfare Centre in Mombasa, that their demands are geared towards making the learning environment better for the children, including those with special needs.

β€œThe last review on capitation was done in 2010 when it was capped at Sh1,400 per child. This figure falls far below the requirements to effectively run a primary school. In our proposal, we have taken into account inflation rates, cost of living, and depreciation.” Said Nzioka.

They urged the government to promote head teachers in Grade D1, saying the progression of the tutors at that level has stagnated for a long.
