Board of Management teachers and staff set to receive salaries

After going without pay for three months, the Ministry of Education has finally come to the rescue of the Board of Management teachers and staff.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha announced that the teachers and staff would receive their salaries at the end of July 2020. This way, the government will support the teachers and staff on public schools’ payroll.

Earlier this month, Education CAS Zack Kinuthua noted that the Ministry was considering paying Board of Management teachers and staff in public schools. The move aims at cushioning them from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Speaking at the National and County Governments Coordinating Summit at State House, President Uhuru Kenyatta directed CS George Magoha and CS Ukur Yattani to make the payments. The summit happened on Monday, 27th July.

The president also asked the two leaders to outline how they will handle the technical aspect of disbursing the payments. The two Cabinet Secretaries will have to budget on how to release the funds.

Private school teachers had also requested for payment. Unfortunately, there was no discussion on the same. The government did not set aside any money for private school teachers.

Community learning

The government wants to focus on community learning. Teachers will volunteer to teach students living in the same neighborhood. CS Magoha will have to develop the relevant protocols for community learning.

Following Uhuru’s directive, the Ministry of Education will also start to upgrade all basic learning institutions in Kenya.

“The Ministry of Education shall expedite the roll-out of the eight-point stimulus program which targets to improve school infrastructure by various means, including the acquisition of at least 250,000 locally fabricated desks,” Uhuru Kenyatta said.

The move will ensure that when schools reopen in 2021, they will follow h CS Magoha’s new proposal on schools opening, which focuses on social distancing.

The upgrade of schools will cause an increase in school fees when schools reopen.
