COMMISSION TO CRACK WHIP ON IRREGULARLY PROMOTED TEACHERS

EXTERNAL LINKS WITH RELATED CONTENT

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC has now made it clear about its next move once it collects data on all the teachers who were irregularly promoted.

Fresh details now indicate that the affected teachers should brace for tougher times ahead since they are staring at imminent salary cuts which will be remitted to the Commission starting July 1, 2020.

These teachers have enjoyed higher salaries that they did not deserve under the 54 billion pay rise for the last three years.

WRONG DATA

According to the Commission, the data used to promote these teachers into senior management positions were not properly captured.

This prompted irregular conversions of grades leading to overpayment and irregular salary increments for some of the tutors.

The affected teachers comprise senior teachers, deputy headteachers, and headteachers who were elevated before the roll-out of the 2017-2021 CBA.

Some County Directors provided inaccurate and misleading information leading to erroneous conversions since some teachers were promoted to grades exclusively meant for school administrators.

According to the TSC Boss Dr. Macharia, some schools were overstaffed. Some schools’ staffing levels exceeded the maximum number set by the TSC staffing norms.

TSC provides a list of school heads for fresh listing

Attached to the June 3 TSC Circular on the irregular promotions was a complete list of all TSC employed teachers currently serving as school heads for fresh listing in order to weed out undeserving ones.

County directors are required to study the list carefully and identify tutors who are not correctly placed or those captured as serving administrative functions yet they are not.

β€œYou are expected to carefully study the list and identify teachers who are not correctly placed or are not performing administrative functions yet their names appear as such in the database,” Wrote Nancy Macharia.

DEVOLVED FUNCTIONS

This comes at a time when the TSC has devolved some of its functions to county and regional offices.

In a Circular dated February 13 2020, all TSC promotions and appointments will now be conducted at the county and regional levels.

The circular contains the latest TSC guidelines on teacher promotions. According to the guidelines, the commission has devolved the appointment and consequent promotion of all school administrators save for those serving in the extra -county and national schools.

β€œThe Commission hereby directs that the appointment and deployment of all primary and secondary school institutional administrators for County and Sub-County schools secondary schools be coordinated by the regional director,” reads part of the circular.

The circular also provides an elaborate policy on the process of appointing the afore-mentioned school administrators to ensure fairness and equity.

The new policy dictates that TSC County directors be charged with the responsibility of identifying available vacancies for school administrators and present the list to the Commission for advertisement.

Interested and qualified candidates will then apply for the positions online for the Commission to shortlist them.

The regional director will then interview the shortlisted candidates with the help of the respective TSC County directors and deploy successful candidates.

The TSC regional director of education shall be held accountable for the entire process.

DEVOLVED CORRUPTION

This news has been received with mixed reactions with some tutors thinking that this is a way of devolving corruption.

They believe that this decentralization will give regional and county directors too much power compared to when the interviews were conducted at the TSC headquarters.

According to a teacher who sought anonymity, regional directors mar simply connive with County directors to prefer some candidates over others.
