Headteachers in P1 who lack degrees will be demoted the next year

Headteachers in P1 who lack degrees will be demoted the next year

The following year, P1 Headteachers without degrees will be demoted.

The promotion of non-graduate primary school headteachers will arise from the start of the Presidential Working Party on Education measures (PWPER) implementation in January 2024.

The Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) is to be introduced, and primary schools that are hosting junior secondary schools (JSS) at that time must be led by their headteachers for a transitional period that ends on December 30, 2023.

The current pre-school, primary school, and JSS would be housed in the same compound under the PWPER’s recommendation to create a single unit with a single headmaster.

The Comprehensive School, which will be known as the single institution that comprises all three levels and be headed by a principle, is what the education reforms team’s most recent suggestions call for.

Deputy principals are the teachers in charge of the nursery, primary, and junior schools who assist the principal. They must all have teaching degrees.

There are more than 23,000 public elementary schools in Kenya, and the majority of them have permission from the Ministry of Education to host JSS.

Policies for senior teachers who will answer to the head must be developed by the government and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).

Current headteachers who don’t meet the qualifications to run comprehensive schools are likely to be given reduced roles.

They will thus lose control over the institution’s money and business activities.

Some schools have been operating without long-term administrators because the commission was unable to find candidates for the positions.

It has been advertised for the positions since December 2022.

The commission is blamed by teachers unions for the situation because thousands of tutors have been in the same job groups for a long time and are not qualified to move up to administrative positions.

The PWPER proposed in December of last year that JSS be adopted in elementary schools, which is the opposite of what the Jubilee administration’s initial goal was. It will begin to be put into practice in January 2023.

Grades 7, 8, and 9 are available at the JSS. While some of the reform team’s recommendations have already begun to be put into practice, it will likely take two years to complete the remainder.

The preliminary PWPER report, which President William Ruto will unveil next week, states that the head of the comprehensive school would be the accounting officer of each department under it.

The school Board of Management’s (BOM) composition is likewise liable to change.

The JSSs are now managed by a temporary subcommittee made up of members of the BoM for elementary schools.

The PWPER also recommends capping the number of BoM members at nine or ten. It asserts that the current boards are bloated.

Alternatively, the TSC would not represent the Ministry of Education but rather the comprehensive and senior secondary school heads.

The modifications’ core issue is the management of the massive amounts of funding allocated to schools.

There is a sense that the ministry has no control over how the money is used because principals and headteachers work for the TSC, an independent constitutional agency.

The PWPER suggestions will help the ministry reclaim a lot of the control it lost when the 2010 Constitution was approved.

The commission was previously a ministry division.

When he presented the 2023–2027 TSC Strategic Plan at the Kenya School of Government on Thursday, Musalia Mudavadi, the prime cabinet secretary, hinted to the upcoming changes.

“I understand there have been differences of opinion between the TSC, teachers, and parents over whether there has been effective teacher re-orientation on CBC and the quantity of teachers required for its effective implementation,” Mr. Mudavadi said.

The TSC and parent ministry dispute on who should suggest candidates for school leaders separately. While we wait for the task group’s report on CBC, there is nothing stopping us from talking to one another and offering the task force suggestions for a unified stance.

I really believe that if you want to criticize, you should do it while making a counterargument. Don’t condemn. has the moral character to offer solutions.

The idea to demote primary school headteachers without a degree in January 2024 is opposed by teachers unions.

The Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms’ recommendation to demote primary school head teachers without advanced degrees was challenged by senior administrators of the Kenya National Union of Teachers.

According to Collins Oyuu, secretary general of Knut, the proposition would be the worst form of unfair labour practice, and the union will not accept it.

Nearly all of the head teachers in primary schools are graduates. You’re erroneous if you think primary school principals aren’t college grads, Oyuu said.

He continued by saying that the group wanted head teachers without degrees to be permitted to pursue further study without being demoted.

He asserted that the majority of the teachers in question hold degrees.

Oyuu was addressing Knut Coast regional leaders in Mombasa county at Ronald Ngala Primary School.

If there is a head teacher who is not a graduate, “we will demand they be allowed to continue to university and obtain the qualification.”

The union, he continued, supports the team’s other modifications, and the Junior Secondary School (JSS) and Senior Secondary School should be replaced by a comprehensive school.

Oyuu contends that a comprehensive school, as opposed to JSS, which is based in elementary school before moving to senior secondary school with various head teachers, should start at the Early Child Development Education (ECDE) level and last through Grade 12 under one administration and a single principal.

Additionally, given that the TSC and Ministry of Education routinely dispute, he supported the idea to transfer rather than limit the TSC’s authority.
