Teachers Service Commission Secretary, Nancy Macharia has advised head teachers to be conversant with the law to effectively deal with various issues concerning management of their institutions.
Speaking during the official opening of the Kenya Primary Schools Headteachers Association (KEPSHA), Western region 5th conference held at Farmview Hotel, Busia recently, the CEO noted that it was important to operate within the law. The conference attracted more than 1,200 delegates and education officials from Busia, Kakamega, Bungoma and Vihiga counties.
“We have had good careers going down the drain because of ignorance of the law. Always refer to various laws such as Chapter Six of the Constitution; Trade Union Act and Basic Education Act to be able to make right decisions,” she counseled.
The CEO, who was the Chief Guest, had her speech delivered by Nkatha Murungi from the TSC Management of Primary Education section.
Western Regional education co-ordinator, Hellen Musimbi Chelule said the KEPSHA Annual Conference provided headteachers an opportunity to interact and share their experiences.
The occasion was graced by among others Western region KEPSHA chairman, Josephat A. Otiende.
