Teachers employer the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) wants to start monitoring teachers on Social Media, in a bid to reign in on their online conversations that could portray the teaching fraternity in bad light.

Mary Rotich, the Director of Teacher Management while speaking in Nairobi during celebrations to mark Safer Internet cautioned teachers against online conversations that could portray them and all teachers in bad light. She added that posting ‘irresponsible information’ on Social Media does not show good conduct.

“We have the power to monitor what teachers exchange on Social Media and we are thinking of starting to monitor these exchanges”, she asserted.
