SUPPORT THE IDENTIFICATION AND DEPLOYMENT OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS’ HEAD TEACHERS

The National Council of Churches of Kenya has taken note of the ongoing debate on the identification and deployment of head teachers to different public schools in the country.

As one of the key stakeholders in the education sector, the Council recognizes the mandate of the Teachers Service Commission to employ and deploy teachers in all public schools in the country.
The TSC, in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, have a responsibility to ensure prudent, effective and equitable implementation of the education policy to safeguard the heritage of our nation.

We therefore wish to call on all stakeholders to consider supporting the deployment and/or re-deployment of Head Teachers.

Where there are specific matters of concern, the concerned persons should use the established appeal mechanism. Cases of injustice can be lodged in courts of law for remedial action to be effected.

It is our considered position that as Kenyans, we must learn to uphold the dignity of institutions if we wish to prosper. Public castigation of institutions without following the laid down processes only breeds chaos and social breakdown.

In conclusion, we take this opportunity to wish all Kenyans a prosperous 2018 full of good health and God’s blessings.
