Teachers Service Commission to Hire 30,000 teachers in January.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will recruit only 30,000 teachers in January next year to bridge the staffing gap in public schools.
The remainder of the 116,000 promised by President William Ruto during the elections campaigns has been pushed forward due to ” the economic situation”
The Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu made the announcement yesterday, adding that hiring will be done progressively.
The Education CS was speaking at Kisii School explained that the current could not allow the President’s promise to be fulfilled at once.
“We know that this coming year, we had promised 116,000 teachers but because of the nature of the economy,the way it is ,we are going to do it progressively.
So this coming January we are going to recruit 30,000 teachers and thereafter ,we will be able to improve ” Mr Machogu told Principals from Kisii and Nyamira counties.
