TSC to monitor striking teachers’ performance

Teachers on strike will be monitored by their employer starting Tuesday according to a circular issued on Monday.

Teachers Service Commission in the circular recalled all county and sub-county directors on leave to oversee the opening of schools across the country.

“In addition, all field officers are required to urgently put in place mechanisms to monitor the opening of schools and performance of all teachers employed by the commission,” stated the circular in part.

This comes even as the planned teachers’ strike kicked off across the country with spot checks by Nairobi News revealing paralyzed learning in public schools.

The field officers will be required to ensure all teachers report to school and that the head teachers and principals supervise learning and submit a daily roll call of teachers and learners via email every day at 4pm.

Pupils who were scheduled to open schools on Monday were either turned away or remained in school alone without teachers.

The industrial court earlier declared the teachers’ strike illegal as the commission set Friday January 9 as the new date for a meeting with the unions.
