The latest education news.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has said all teachers employed by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will now be enrolled to provide community service lessons. The CS said this on Thursday morning while addressing the media on stakeholder resolutions on reopening of learning institutions in Kenya in the face of the Corona crisis.

“Multi-agency teams (will) map out country to ensure teachers offer community service lessons on values to learners under an arrangement similar to the Nyumba Kumi framework. TSC will issue guidelines on the new plan that will come at no cost to parents.” Said CS Maghoha.

Present at the media briefing was TSC Boss Dr. Nancy Macharia who said the Commission will come up with guidelines on community service learning to be conducted by teachers.

This comes after President Uhuru Kenyatta asked the CS to convene a stake holders’ meeting to chat the way forward on reopening of learning institutions.

Magoha says the Ministry is expected to continue inspecting institutions of learning to ensure they are ready for reopening in January 2021.

He said most colleges and universities are not ready for reopening and will thus remain closed till January 2021. He asked the Universities to continue offering online programmes, including examinations and graduations to students.

The good news for teachers employed by the Boards of Management as the CS affirmed that they will be receiving their perks in coming weeks.

“The Government has set aside funds to pay salaries to Board of Government teachers, security staff and settle utilities,” confirmed the CS.
