TSC transfers 3,000 heads of primary, secondary schools
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has transferred more than 3,000 head teachers of primary and secondary schools.
The transfers follow the retirement of headteachers and principals who attained the mandatory age of retirement in the last three months.
In a statement sent to newsrooms on Tuesday, TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia said those who have been transferred have until the December 28, 2018 to hand over.
Deputy heads who are qualified and have exemplary performance records have been promoted to headship positions.
Earlier this year, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) had opposed the teachers’ transfer which was part of TSC’s delocalization programme.
TSC says that any issues by individual heads that will arise from the transfers will be handled by the receiving county heads.
