There has always been a, perceived, frosty relationship between teachers and their employer, TSC, with teachers blaming the TSC of high handedness when it comes to matters policy and disciplining of teachers. Teachers feel the employer acts harshly when unleashing disciplinary action on them.
Last week, the TSC boss announced that a total of 62 teachers were facing disciplinary action for involvement in alleged exam malpractices; during the administration process of the 2018 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
