The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has extended the deadline for submitting teachers’ appraisal reports for first term, 2019. The initial deadline that had been set for Sunday 5th May, 2019, has been extended by 25 days. The new deadline shall be 30th May, 2019, for both Appraisers and Appraisees.
This latest development comes even as the Kenya National Union of Teachers, KNUT, holds on to its hard-line position; against the appraisal system. The system has received opposition as teachers spend long hours feeding the data onto the system at the expense of teaching. The system also faces serious bottlenecks; as it can not sustain high traffic.
