KNUT lauds new policy for posting of teachers

By Kage Njoroge.

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has praised the new policy to post teachers outside their home counties.
Murang’a South Executive Secretary, John Njata welcomed the move by Teachers Service Commission (TSC), saying it would deepen nationalism in the counties.
This, he stated, would help to enhance national cohesion and ethnic integration among Kenyan communities.
Njata observed that sending teachers to work far from where they were born will expose them to new environments and open opportunities for the self-development.
“It will also contribute to the improvement of the Education sector through interaction, new ideas and experiences from different backgrounds,” he said.
The union official was speaking during an induction seminar of newly recruited primary school teachers posted to the County.
Njata urged them to have positive attitudes towards the profession so as to perform better in delivery of services.
The County TSC Director Jane Njagi disclosed that the 164 teachers were recruited in Kiambu County and posted to Murang’a schools.
Those from Murang’a were posted to Nakuru and Nyandarua counties.
She told them to prepare to promote effective teaching which will bring better results to the children.
