TSC Deregistered 64 Teachers over Indiscipline Cases

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has laid off 64 teachers for committing various offences that are against the code of conduct of the teaching profession.

The Commission revealed this through a gazette notice dated the 14th of April where the TSC Chief Executive Officer Dr Nancy Macharia said that the said teachers were removed from the teacher’s register and will not be reinstated except via the Commission’s intervention.

“In exercise of powers conferred by Section 30 (1) (e) of the Teachers Service Commission Act Chapter 212 of the Laws of Kenya, the Commission wishes to notify the public the persons whose names are specified in the schedule herein below have been removed from the register of teachers pursuant to the provision of Section 30 (2) of the TSC Act,” reads part of the notice.

Out of the 64, 38 of the teachers were laid off after a disciplinary process while the rest (26) were because of forging certificates during the recruitment process.

According to the TSC CEO, persons the teachers whose names were removed from the register are no longer teachers starting from the dates of the notice.

The teachers are no longer permitted to engage in teaching unless such a person is registered as a teacher under the aforementioned Act.

Macharia also warned schools not to employ such teachers or even involve them in assisting in teaching in any institution.

“Any person who allows or employs unregistered teachers shall be guilty of an offence and are liable to a fine of not less than Sh. 100,000 or to imprisonment for a term not more than two years or both,” said Dr Nacharia.

Among the reasons for being laid off are immoral behaviour, neglect of duty, absenteeism, desertion of duty, insubordination, mismanagement of public funds and being convicted of a criminal offence.

Last year in the month October, the Commission announced that it had sacked 43 teachers for various professional misconduct and warned both public and private schools against employing the deregistered teachers in any capacity of teaching.

In May, 52 teachers were also sacked and a further 50 in November.

Immoral behaviour committed by those teachers includes and is not limited to engaging in sexual intercourse, sodomy, lesbianism and sexual harassment. Infamous conduct includes drunkenness, fighting, conduct or behaviour which contradicts the Constitution, forgery/presentation of forged documents, mismanagement, misappropriation of funds and so on.

Teachers should be wary of going against the rules and regulations set by their employer as the sacked teachers should serve as an example that the Commission is intolerant of unprofessionalism.
