The Teachers Service Commission has announced the allocation of one teacher per class for junior secondary.

Primary schools will receive teachers, according to the number of classes they have for Grade.

TSC legal officer Cavin Anyuor told MPs there are 30,550 Grade 7 classes in the country.

“If the county has 1,000 classes we have allocated 1,000 teachers,” he said.

Further, Anyuor said the number of teachers is based on budget allocation by the treasury.

On his part, TSC chair Jamleck Muturi said the commission will retool primary school teachers.

Muturi said this seeks to ensure all schools have sufficient numbers of teachers.

“TSC will redistribute teachers who are in primary school who have qualified to teach in junior secondary,” he said.

TSC has allocated one teacher for every class beginning January.
