18,000 Teachers To Be Trained On CBC in August

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) is set to train 18,000 more teachers on Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) before the re-opening of schools. According toTeachers Service Commission (TSC) chief executive Nancy Macharia, suspension of CBC training was met due to the government ban on public gathering as a measure to curb the spread of coronavirus infections.  While appearing before the National Assembly this week on Wednesday to respond to assertions by Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma on the interdiction of the two hundred and forty-five teachers over charges of incitement and disturbance of CBC teacher-training concourses, Nancy Macharia affirmed that the Commission was intending to exercise about 6,000 Grade 3 and Grade five CBC teachers training. She said she is positive for another training of 12,000 special needs teachers in August 2020.
According to TSC register record, CBC teachers totalling to about 339,743 were exercised after April, while roughly 200 teachers got suspended over insubordination to their managers and provocation on the CBC practice coordinated by the Ministry of Education and TSC. 42 teachers were then sacked with another 30 teachers receiving warning letters following the disruption to the CBC training. Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) defended and called the reinstation of the suspended and sacked teachers but all was in vain.
The discrimination accusation of TSC by Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma indicated a  punitive behaviour to who are democratically exercising their rights. Dr Nancy Macharia justified herself by alleging that some of the accused teachers had exhibited enough proof to support their absenteeism. She said some teachers claimed they did not receive the invitation letters while some presented a medical report in their mitigation against punishment which led to different determinations against individuals as some interdictions were revoked.
She, however, promised to table the appeal of the 47 teachers case for hearing and determination at the Commission's Disciplinary Committee meeting.
