Cabinet has approved the National teacher’s policy to improve their quality, streamline their management to improve their productivity, discipline, retention and motivation.

Addressing journalists at the Media center, the government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo said the policy which will be effected immediately will apply to both Private and public schools.

Opondo adds that the policy will also check the cause of poor performance in public schools even when they are well facilitated.

With the new policy in place, all teachers will be required to be contractors to ease their payment.

The policy will also strengthen pre-service  and  in-service  teacher  training  so as to  enhance  competence  so that they can effectively  deliver quality learning outcomes  and leadership at all levels of the education cycle.
