Teachers involved in exam irregularities facing de-registration – TSC
40 teachers face de-registration should they be found guilty of engaging in exam irregularities.
This was revealed by Teachers Service Commission CEO Nancy Macharia during release of this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exam results at Nairobi School.
“We will take stern action against them. We shall dismiss and de-register them so that they do not step in any our schools in Kenya either in public or private schools.” warned Macharia
The TSC boss further put on notice teachers in private schools saying that they are subject to the law, warning to de-register those found to be abetting cheating.
On his part, Education Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i attributed this behavior to teacher’s failure to teach their students.
“Some of our teachers are not teaching and so exam time becomes a desperate time.” Said Matiang’i
Matiang’i further issued a warning to private schools saying that if they are found to have hired a de-registered teacher, the institution would also be de-registered.
“We will pursue these cases and we will act without mercy. We will not compromise on the quality of education of our children.” Said the CS
The TSC boss also intimated that re-organization of school heads has been completed and teachers in primary and secondary schools who have stayed in one station for 9 years and above will be moved.
