Latest Education News: Shocker for TSC teachers as ministry demands for certificate of good conduct, read the full details below

All TSC teachers have been served with a rude shock following Professor Fatuma Chege’s (the newly elected Principal Secretary for basic education) remarks.

Professor Chege through a popular radio station stated that no teacher will be allowed to instruct learners under the new Competency-based curriculum, CBC without a certificate of good conduct.

Her remarks come barely a month after she made a similar statement in February when she was leading the taskforce on the transition from the colonial 8-4-4 to the talent-based 2-6-3-3 system.
