Nationwide teacher transfer exercise began on April and will see teachers from both primary and secondary schools transferred to different schools across the country.
Quite a number of teachers are concerned about mass transfers next term as the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) rationalizes staffing across the country.
At it times of transfers, TSC’s delocalisation program has been a thorn in the flesh for teachers. Teachers have complained that the transfers are tearing families apart.
With these transfers, on the other hand, are a huge relief for teachers who are married and have declared their marital status, because the commission ordered that they be transferred to the same neighbourhood as much as possible.
According to Commission CEO Nancy Macharia, this exercise is intended to ensure that all schools have a balanced teacher-to-learner ratio before the start of second term next month.
TSC boss further noted that if the issue was left unchecked, it will have a negative impact on learning outcomes in our learning institutions
