Untrained teachers took advantage of a TSC loophole to increase their pay and advance their careers.

Untrained teachers took advantage of a TSC loophole to increase their pay and advance their careers.

On Tuesday, May 23, primary teachers uncovered a flaw in the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) grading system that allowed inexperienced instructors to receive promotions and greater pay.

The primary teachers said in a petition submitted to Parliament that the old TSC Directorate of Personnel Management had established a scheme of service in 1996 that required all teachers with A-level academic credentials to submit their names for promotions nation-wide.

The petitioners claimed that by participating in a two-week program at Kagumo and Bondo Teachers Training Colleges to get certificates, unskilled A-level tutors attempted to outsmart the authorities.

The Ministry of Education then went on to grade and promote the tutors who took part in the two-week training course, thereby locking out other competent A-level teachers who had not attended, according to the primary teachers.

The petition stated, in part, that “The Ministry then went ahead and graded untrained “A” level teachers who had attended a two-week program at Kagumo and Bondo Teachers Training colleges to Secondary School Teachers, locking other “A” Level Primary School Teachers who had not attended the course and causing complaints by the “A” level trained teachers.

Primary school teachers who were upset remarked that they had not received the promotions and raises they had been promised.

They claimed that this went against the Standard Labor Practices, which provide that every employee has a right to appropriate pay, safe working conditions, the ability to join a union, take part in union activities, and the ability to go on strike in support of their labor-related rights.

The petition was forwarded to the Standing Committee on Education, which has sixty days from the petition’s filing to reply and present a report to the Senate.

To advocate for a salary increase for tutors, TSC and teachers’ unions have conducted beginning discussions to renegotiate the 2021–2025 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) suggested a wage increase of 42% whereas the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) campaigned for a 60% raise.

Collins Oyuu, the secretary-general of KNUT, observed that teachers have endured irreparable harm as a result of TSC’s refusal to address compensation increases over the previous seven years.

Salary increases were not discussed in the most recent CBA agreement, which was reached in 2021, since both sides recognized that the nation was still rebuilding from the pandemic’s devastating consequences.
