Leaders in Mashuuru Sub County have blamed head teachers’ poor management on the dismal performance exhibited in last year’s national examinations results.
Speaking during a Sub County educational forum in Mashuuru town recently, Deputy County Commissioner Stephen Nyakundi (above) claimed head teachers have been unable to control their schools.
Nyakundi told a meeting of education sector stakeholders that was graced by nominated ODM senator Judy Pareno that it is sad that, from available records, head teachers’ subjects were poorly performed.
“It is important that all of us in this education sector should work together as team to improve our grades. Head teachers should stay at school and any student found to be inciting others to strike should be treated as a criminal and hence reported to the police immediately,” said Nyakundi.
The leaders unanimously supported the DCC in his brief that head teachers must have their intelligence to avert destruction of property in schools.
The issue of delocalisation of teachers through the on-going transfer of teachers was discussed at length and teachers were told not to fear the changes.
Leaders in attendance told head teachers to allow their deputies free hand to take control of all dispute cases for students so as to avert indiscipline in institutions of learning.
All the leaders present also pointed out that chronic absenteeism of teachers in school should be discouraged at all cost so as to make their schools compete with others fairly in national examinations.
