TSC Chairman Dr. Jamleck Muturi while appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee in December 2022 told the legislators that the Commission will retool primary school teachers to handle JSS in a move to ensure all schools have sufficient number of teachers.
“TSC will redistribute teachers who are in primary school who have qualified to teach in junior secondary,” he said.
Grade 7 teachers will teach Mathematics, Languages, Pure Sciences (Integrated Science Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Health Education), Applied sciences (Agriculture, Home Science and Computer Studies),
Humanities (Social Studies, Religious Studies and Life Skills), Technical subjects and Creative Arts, Pre-
