A day later, on April 14, Education officials in Trans Mara East denied her claims, saying Njoki only covered a maximum of nine kilometres on foot daily.

Teachers have been told to avoid restricting their efforts on the academic timetables alone in an effort to achieve excellent performance in schools.
Homa Bay County Director of Education Fredrick Kiiru and his TSC counterpart Solomon Leseewa want teachers in the county to go an extra mile in their efforts to achieve sterling academic results.

41 teachers died of Covid-19, says TSC


It was also not clear whether all the 230,000 teachers selected to take part in the administration of the KCPE and KCSE will be vaccinated ahead of the examinations.
Some of these teachers who will be invigilators and supervisors are below 50 years which in not within the group targeted for the jab.
Whether TSC's field officers and the secretariat staff will also be vaccinated also remained unclear.

Teaching jobs call for re-evaluation


OPINION
The Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) undertook the first-ever job evaluation exercise in 2012 that evaluated State officers and independent offices as defined in the Constitution (2010). The commission later conducted a similar exercise for public officers in 2016 in which jobs in the teaching service were evaluated.
The applicable grading and salary structures arising from the exercise were subsequently communicated and implemented by public sector institutions, including TSC. It was at this juncture that the public noticed jobs in the teaching service had been poorly assessed leading to poor grading that affected the salary structures for teachers. At least 90,000 teachers in Job Group “G” were graded under band “B” that categorises officers with low-level supervisory skills (semi-skilled operational staff) such as interns, carpenters, fitters, drivers, artisans and cooks, just to name a few.

A fresh row is brewing between the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) over impending mass transfers and delocalisation of school heads.
Panic has hit over 30,000 heads of public schools as details emerged of a fresh shake-up by the TSC. 
Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has directed its regional staff to collect and forward data of school heads who have stayed in one station for over nine years.
In a February 26 memo to all Regional Directors, TSC wants to be furnished with details of primary school headteachers and principals of secondary schools who have exited the teaching service.

Teachers have continued to pile pressure, through their unions, to demand new allowances and review of their remuneration terms from their employer. 
Separate meetings for teachers in Kericho and Nakuru counties saw them agitate for new allowances, which they say are to cushion them from working under risky conditions.
In Kericho County, the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) demanded that the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) pay them risk allowances for handling dangerous laboratory chemicals and “rowdy” students. 
"We want a risk allowance so that in case a teacher is affected in any way, their dependents will not suffer," said the newly-elected branch chairman Jonah Korir.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has given the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) up to the end of the month, to start remitting teachers' dues.
Speaking during the Nairobi branch elections at City Primary School yesterday, Secretary-General Wilson Sossion said the union's staff have gone for several months without salaries and some of their offices closed due to failure to get union dues from TSC.
 "We have many options to use to ensure our concerns are addressed and one of them is organising a strike," said Sossion.

Knut issues two-week strike notice over pay


The union boss claimed that TSC had opted not to respond to the request, “but is instead attempting to revoke our recognition agreement to render Knut irrelevant in the next CBA”.
“Despite correspondence dating back to 2019 urging TSC to formally commence and conclude negotiations with us, including the last correspondence, has been copied to you, (there has been) zero response,” the letter reads.
Sossion further claims that the union is aware that TSC had already consulted with the Salaries and Remuneration Commission (SRC) on new CBA proposals, but had opted to remain quiet on engaging with union members.
“We are fully aware that TSC has forwarded salary proposals to SRC without formally commencing negotiations with Knut, and the said proposals are currently being analysed by SRC,” Sossion says.

Schools are facing a serious dilemma on how to discipline learners, as teachers and parents reject the use of the cane to punish errant students.
Opinion remains divided on the proposal by the Ministry of Education to reintroduce the cane banned in 2001, as some stakeholders say it may be the magic stick to restore good manners in schools.
Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha last week hinted at a possible move to bring back the cane as cases of indiscipline increased in schools.

The government and education sector players will keenly be observing events of this week as they will determine the successful return to normal learning.
Compliance with the Covid-19 protocols among learners and teachers will be tested after the school community spent first two weeks in the institutions.
Primary and secondary school heads yesterday said most learners dropped their guard in the third week when schools opened for Grade Four, Standard Eight and Form Four classes late last year.
Some teachers say during the partial schools opening last year, most learners and teachers were not keen to wear masks and clear breach of some of the protocols was glaring during games and boarding sessions.

Gene therapy strategy found effective in mouse model of hereditary disease TSC
ANI |
Updated: Jan 11, 2021 11:13 IST
Washington [US], January 11 (ANI): A team led by investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has now shown that gene therapy can effectively treat mice that express one of the mutated genes that cause the tuberous sclerosis complex disease.
The research is published in Science Advances.
The gene, called TSC2, codes for tuberin, a protein that acts to inhibit cell growth and proliferation. When mutations occur in TSC2, resulting in a lack of tuberin in cells, the cells enlarge and multiply, leading to the formation of tumors.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) National treasurer John Matiang’i has hit out on the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) for forcing teachers to attend educational seminars and workshops during weekends and holidays.
Matiang’i said the move by TSC to force teachers to attend the said workshops was illegal and individualistic aimed at intimidating teachers.
Speaking in Kisii on Sunday, while presiding over the branch elections, the treasurer said the commission’s action is unconstitutional as it interferes with freedom of worship.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) has protested the implementation of the Career Progression Guidelines by the teachers’ employer saying they were quashed by a court.
Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion said Justice Byrum Ongaya in 2019 quashed the promotions circular, which had limited career progression to those with teachers training certificates.
“TSC has been engaging in an illegality and breaching various sections of Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBAs), Code of Regulations for Teachers and clauses of international labour laws,” said Sossion.
While outlawing the plan, Justice Ongaya ruled that TSC should follow the teachers' scheme of service in promotions and should align the same to the collective bargaining agreement it signed with the unions.
