To help with teacher shortages in arid and semi-arid areas, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has increased the retirement age for teachers by three years.This policy modification specifically affects instructors who labor in hot, dry climates, especially in places like Garissa, Mandera, and Wajir districts.

Teachers in the aforementioned districts are now permitted to work an extra three years past the legal retirement age. Retired teachers in these areas have received contract letters from the TSC inviting them to come back and help fill the teacher shortfall.

Many teachers who were previously forced to retire after reaching the retirement age have welcomed this decision. These regions often present challenging work environments, which has led to a shortage of teachers willing to work there.

The goal of this policy reform is to enlarge the pool of knowledgeable educators  who are able to work in various fields and offer insightful advice and knowledge to  students who depend on their knowledge. As part of this strategy, TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia gave retiring teachers in the  Northeast region precedence. A teacher shortage situation has resulted from the dearth of non-local educators in certain places, especially for educators who frequently visit these  areas.

The effectiveness of the education provided to pupils in these arid and semi-arid areas is anticipated to improve thanks to the new approach, which will guarantee that every child has access to qualified teachers. Now, educators in these places will have the option of working for three more years before retiring.
