KUPPET wants TSC To Employ 115,000 Teachers For CBC To Thrive.The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has expressed doubts about the government’s readiness to implement the Competency-Based Curriculum in schools.To remedy the gap, the administration, according to Secretary-General Akelo Misori, is exclusively focused on creating infrastructure rather than hiring instructors.Mr Misori stated yesterday at the 45th Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (Kessha) national conference held at the Sheikh Zayed Children’s Welfare Centre in Mombasa that in order for CBC to thrive, 115,000 teachers must be employed.“Preparation for the junior secondary is dominated by building infrastructure. We are looking at a shortage of teachers yet the government has introduced 100 per cent transition.“He said that the administration had stalled discussions to raise teachers’ pay and allowances, despite the fact that certain government employees enjoy lavish benefits.“The salary review for teachers was put on hold because of Covid, but the economy has since grown and we can initiate negotiations with the employer soon,” he said.TSC was instructed by the Kuppet chief to sponsor professional development training for teachers.He chastised the government for what he called the militarization of examinations, stating that head teachers in charge of test centers must be respected.“There is a case where the head teacher was ill-treated by security officers over suspicion that there was exam leakage."Meanwhile, Early Learning and Basic Education PS Julius Jwan stated that the Education ministry consumes over 26% of the national budget and that raising additional funding for the docket may be challenging.Dr. Jwan refuted charges of exam militarization, claiming that security officials only act on cheating reports in certain locations.More, according to Stephen Odebero, a professor of educational planning and the head of postgraduate studies at Masinde Muliro University.According to him, 712,045 of the non-schooling youngsters are males and 618,117 are girls.“We cannot account for them. The number of boys is higher than that of girls. The government should invest in a survey to investigate the cause of non-schooling,” Prof Odebero said..He speculated that the large number of non-schooling children may be attributed to a dearth of work for parents who cannot pay school fees.KUPPET wants TSC To Employ 115,000 Teachers For CBC To Thrive.
