Teachers have given an array of conditions they want met before resuming learning come September.

1.Teachers to serve within their localities.
Teachers’ Service Commission (TSC) to do away with delocalization policy that saw many teachers work away from their homes.

Through KNUT Secretary General wilson Sossion,teachers said that in accordance with Ministry of health guidelines, they should be allowed to work within their areas of residence to avoid spreading the virus.

To effect this,they asked the employer to reogarnise staffing with a view to minimising movements.

According to Sossion, posting of teachers should be done within their localities or in areas where they have established their homes to minimise movement as possible.

He argued that teachers posted away from their homes or family members always extend weekends to visit their families.

2.Teachers be inducted on Measures to lessen Covid 19, safety measures and effects of the virus.

The firebrand Secretary general said that teachers must first be trained on how to deal with Corona virus professionally, psychologically and emotionally as well as related stigma.

3.Setting up of emergency Health facilities.
They also want the employer to set up treatment centres to handle cases that might arise after resumption and throughout the term.

4.Special attention be given to teachers with 55years of age and above and those that might have underlying medical conditions such as cancer,high blood pressure and diabetes.

He added that about 50,000 of teachers fall within the high risk age hence need for proper deployment strategies.

5.An affirmative action plan for war-striken counties such as Garissa ,Wajir,Mandera and Tana River to increase the number of teachers.

He said that to implement social distancing with high number of students currently in the government schools,more than 400,000 teachers must be employed.

6.A class to contain a maximum of 15 students/pupils. This would mean that a review of staffing be done.

7.TSC to absorb all teachers who are qualified and registered by the Commission.

In connection to this, he proposes that all interns be employed on permanent and pensionable terms to help check understaffin’g.
