In a bid to address longstanding grievances of ECDE teachers in Bomet, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Bomet Branch has urged the county government of Bomet to grant Early Childhood Education Teachers (ECDE) the freedom to join the teachers’ movement as they see fit.

Led by the Branch Executive Secretary, Desmond Langat, KNUT’s Bomet arm is pushing for the rights of ECDE teachers, who have found themselves entangled in disputes with the county administration regarding their remuneration.

Langat minced no words in his criticism of the county’s education officials, accusing them of negligence and incompetence.

He asserted that their failure to effectively address the concerns of ECDE teachers not only jeopardizes the welfare of educators but also undermines the legacy of the governor.

“The officials in the county’s education sector are sleeping on the job and allowing messes that, in the end, might bring down the governor’s legacy,” Langat remarked.

The demand for the inclusion of ECDE teachers in the teachers’ union comes against the backdrop of protracted disputes over salary disparities and inadequate support for ECDE educators.

KNUT’s stance reflects a growing sentiment among educators who feel marginalized and undervalued in the education sector.

ECDE teachers play a crucial role in laying the foundation for children’s education, yet they often find themselves grappling with low wages and insufficient resources.

By advocating for their integration into the teachers’ union, KNUT aims to provide ECDE teachers with a stronger voice and greater collective bargaining power.

The KNUT Bomet Branch’s call to action underscores the urgent need for the county government to prioritize the well-being and rights of all educators.
