TSC News 2021/2022: Fate of Teachers With Degrees, Masters & PhDs in Primary Schools Declared
The Government is spending billions of shillings just to see the learners succeed in their thirst for Education in the country.The free primary and secondary education program has really done miracles for millions of students since its commencement.
The students in the higher learning institutions also get the government’s HELB loans that have been their only sources of hope.
The Government is changing the Education system.8.4.4 is getting replaced by the new 126.96.36.199 system that is emphasising on skills.The teachers are getting trained in the CBC curriculum.Implementation of the curriculum is entering grade five after tomorrow.The Government needs the teachers to be well conversant with the new CBC curriculum.
Inorder to continue equipping the teachers with the new skills,the Government has introduced a new Diploma upgrading program for all the primary school teachers under TSC,non employed and all ECDE teachers whether employed by counties or not.
However,the teachers who have done Degrees, Masters and PhDs but are teaching in primary schools have been asking if they deserve to be trained on this.
For now,the Government has just generalised every teacher in primary school.
It has not given specific qualifications of a teacher.The thing is that the teachers going for trainings must have done the ECDE and PTE exams which are the prerequisite levels.This means that whether a teacher has PhD and is in primary,he or she must go for this training that is looming.
