The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has ordered a fresh head count of teachers before the implementation of the final pay raise under the 2017-2021 collective bargaining agreement (CBA)
The head count order comes after it emerged that wrong information was presented by county education directors to the TSC.
“In a circular dated June 3, Ms Macharia said before the implementation of the current CBA on July 1, 2017, county directors were instructed to validate the data for institutional administrators who were on duty as at June 30, 2017,” a report that appeared in a local daily said.
“It has been established that some of you provided inaccurate and misleading data leading to erroneous conversion. Classroom teachers were converted to grades exclusively reserved for institutional administrators, teachers serving as deputy or senior teachers were wrongly captured as head teachers while in other instances, staffing levels in terms of required administrators in a school exceeded the optimum establishment contrary to the established norms,” the circular by Ms. Macharia said.
