KENYAN TEACHER SALARY VS MEMBER OF PARLIAMENTUp to 60,000 teachers could benefit from Sh6.8 billion additional funding to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC). The teachers' employer requested the amount from the National Treasury as part of the supplementary budget that is before the National Assembly for approval. Yesterday, the House Education Committee chairperson Sabina Chege said her team had pushed for the allocation, part of which was for teachers' promotions. "Several teachers have not been promoted and it was becoming a crisis. More teachers also had to be recruited and so the committee was wise enough to push for this," Ms Chege said.
