Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Taita Taveta branch has asked the government to urgently post 2,000 teachers to curb an acute shortage in both primary and secondary schools in the area.
Speaking to Education News from Wundanyi town recently, the branch Executive Secretary Lennox Mshila noted that understaffing in the region has hindered smooth learning and has continuously contributed to dismal performance in national examinations.
The KNUT boss said that the employment of more teachers will enhance effective education in schools and boost the region’s education standards.
In addition, Mshila called on education stakeholders in the county to provide essential teaching and learning materials.
He further advised pupils to remain devoted to their studies in order to excel in their national examinations.
“We are expecting impressive performance in this year’s KCPE and KCSE examinations,” he said.
Mshila also urged teachers to double their efforts by ensuring they cover Syllabi early enough to pave the way for thorough revision.
