TSC To Conduct Audit Of All Schools To Ensure Balanced Teacher-To-Learner Ratio.
Nancy Macharia, CEO of the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), has stated that the commission will conduct an audit of all schools across the country to ensure that all schools have a balanced teacher-to-learner ratio before the start of the new academic year in May.
She admitted that primary and secondary schools across the country are experiencing a severe teacher shortage.
Ms. Macharia stated on Monday at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) headquarters in Nairobi during the release of the 2021 KCPE results that the commission is short of 114,581 teachers.
The TSC president stated that while the government funds the annual recruitment of 5,000 teachers, the number is insufficient to support the country’s ever-increasing number of students.
“We thank Government for finding resources for us to recruit an average of 5,000 teachers annually for our public schools. However, we still have a shortage of 114,581 teachers in primary & post-primary institutions due to increased enrollment.” Says Macharia.
The TSC president stated that the current teacher-to-student ratio was unbalanced and did not meet internationally mandated standards.
Macharia blamed the deficit on the 100% transition policy from primary to secondary schools, which was attended by Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha.
“This is due to the increased enrolment arising from the 100 per cent transition policy, and registration of new schools,” the TSC boss noted.
She went on to say that the Commission will conduct a nationwide audit of all basic education institutions to ensure they have a balanced teacher-learner ratio before the start of the new academic year in May 2022.
In terms of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), Macharia stated that 60,000 TSC-registered teachers will receive training in April. This corresponds to the start of junior secondary school.

CS Magoha, who released the KCPE results, stated that the class of 2021 will be the second last to take the national exam under the 8-4-4 system. Grades 7 and 8 will be transferred to high school under CBC.
Since then, the state has spent billions of dollars to oversee the construction of thousands of classrooms across the country. Magoha stated that he will ensure that the construction of classrooms is completed before handing over to the next CS in the government formed after the August 9, 2022, elections.
