The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has stated that it has allocated one teacher per class for junior secondary.
Speaking to members of parliament, TSC legal advisor Cavin Anyuor noted that Primary schools will receive teachers, according to the number of classes they have for Grade 7.
He also told MPs that there are 30,550 Grade 7 classes in the country.
TSC has allocated one teacher for every class beginning January.
“If the county has 1,000 classes we have allocated 1,000 teachers,” he said.
Anyuor said that the allocation of one teacher per class has been informed by budget allocation by treasury.
Anyuor was accompanied with TSC chair Jamleck Muturi who also told Mps that in abid to ensure all schools have sufficient number of teachers the commission will retool primary school teachers.
“TSC will redistribute teachers who are in primary school who have qualified to teach in junior secondary,” he said.
