Parliament pushes CS Rotich to release Sh5bn before 2019 for recruitment of teachers

Parliament has accused National Treasury CS Mr. Rotich over delayed release of shillings 5bn that is supposed to cater for employment of teachers.

National Assembly’s Education Committee chaired by Julius Melly (Tinderet MP) has insisted that more teachers must be employed in order for quality education yo be attained.

“We need the teachers as soon as possible so that our children can have quality education,” said Mr Melly.

The education committee has reached out to the CS Henry Rotich to quickly release Shs 5bn that will help TSC to plan and recruit 10,000 tutors before next year (2019) so as to relief the pain of shortage of teachers in public secondary schools.

Currently, the education sector is grappling with a shortage of teachers and this has raised questions over the quality learning in institutions.

The situation is likely to be worsened next year (2019) since more than one million students will join secondary level as part of government’s 100 per cent transition policy.

According to TSC, the shortage of teachers in secondary schools stands at 63,849. The country has close to 290,000 trained teachers who are yet to be employed.

TSC had early made a proposal to recruit 12, 626 annually for four years since 2018 at a cost of Sh8.3 billion per year, but only 8,700 were recruited this year.
