What you need to know:

  • The residents want the government to, as soon as possible, set aside sufficient funds to recruit and deploy teachers in the affected areas.
  • They also want the government to put in place affirmative action programmes designed for the minorities and marginalised groups.
  • The TSC yielded to pressure and transferred about 886 teachers who had declined to go back to northeastern Kenya alleging insecurity.

Residents of northeastern counties have decried the government's failure to replace teachers who left their schools early this year.
