I’m Ready To Lose My Job – Teacher Says After Government Ordered Compulsory Training (Video)

The education sector in Africa, particularly Ghana and Kenya, is currently controversial. The latest is a government mandate that all teachers on the Teacher Services Commission must take refresher courses every five years.

In Kenya, Commission Secretary Nancy Macharia said in a statement that all teachers should renew their certificates by registering for a teacher training course so they are not removed. According to the TSC, such a step should ensure the success of the competency

This caused a stir when Kenyan Bar Association President Nelson Xavi told the teachers that he would not fight for them this time and that they should not call him. This was paid a few days later after teachers and parents asked lawyers to file complaints against CBC in court. However, Havi agreed on Sunday to help teachers fight the directive.

In this discussion the teachers expressed their views. The HD video went viral of a teacher saying painfully that he would not accept government directives.

The woman, identified as Florence Obay, said the government took union and other benefits but now wants them to pay for the course. He accused the government of trying to manipulate teachers and push them against the wall.
