President William Ruto’s working party on CBC has made some radical Proposals that if implemented fully will bring many changes in the education sector.
Some of the proposals will see powers of the teachers service commission which is constitutionally mandated to hire, register, promote and exercise disciplinary control over teachers in both primary and secondary schools reduced.
The commission had become so powerful to the extend that it could enforce unpopular policies such as delocalization that Parliament had to bring to an end after outcries from teachers.
Besides triming the powers of TSC, the working party proposed the merger of public universities.
Currently, the public institutions of higher learning are operating independent of each other.
And finally, there was a proposal to change the entry grades to teachers training colleges whereby TSC sets the minimum points.
Currently For those who would wish to teach in primary schools, the entry grade is C Plain with C Plain in mathematics which is a hindrance to many.
Reducing powers for TSC will be a big blow to the commission but good news to teachers who have always experienced it’s strong arm tactics.
Teachers feel that its the commission that rendered their unions powerless with Knut always winding up at Some point following TSC’s arm twisting.
