Teachers Transfers: Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed has backed the Teachers Service Commission on the on-going mass transfer of teachers.
In a press briefing on Wednesday, Ms Mohamed expressed confidence and restated that the transfers would not be recalled.
This comes as the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) prepares to go on strike over promotions, transfers, performance contracting and professional development modules.
Ms Mohammed added that, “the government is ready to ensure schools open tomorrow. Schools will open tomorrow despite any threats which have been issued.”
She added: “The government is fully behind TSC CEO Nancy Macharia on the issues of the strike. The announcement that was made in December still stands. Schools will open tomorrow.”
On December 24, the ministry rescheduled the reopening of schools from January 2 to January 3.
The new school term will see the introduction of the new 2-6-3-3 curriculum that will be replacing the old 8-4-4 system.
