Problems That Teachers Face, as Explained by KNUT
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), Nandi Branch, has provided specific information regarding the ongoing challenges that Kenyan educators are confronted with.
Despite the suspension of the delocalization strategy, Branch Secretary Stephen Misoi addressed the media and noted the persistent difficulties that many teachers face when attempting to return to the counties in where they were formerly employed.
In addition to this, Misoi addressed the vital problem of the inadequate pay that teachers receive in comparison to the pay of other public personnel.
Misoi has expressed severe concerns regarding the timeliness of teacher pension payments, and the government has been requested to begin making arrangements for these payouts no later than six months before a teacher departs.
Misoi’s comments come after the government was urged to begin making arrangements for these payouts no later than six months before a teacher leaves.
It was determined that the areas of Terige, Maraba, Chemelil, and the Nandi escarpment would benefit the most from an infusion of instructors, and they were singled out for this distinction.
The plea draws attention to the fact that inadequate staffing levels in the area’s schools has a detrimental impact on the pupils and causes several challenges for the teaching staff.
Misoi begged the commission to take swift action in response to the complaints of difficulties that instructors had encountered when requesting transfers.
He underlined the importance of prompt intervention to alleviate the challenges experienced by teachers, pointing out the misalignment between the teacher-to-learner ratio and the requirement for expanded recruitment.
This was done in order to alleviate the problems experienced by instructors.
