TSC to pry into teachers’ social media accounts before promotion
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has cautioned teachers against irresponsible use of social media which portray the profession in bad light.
TSC director of Teacher Management said the Commission’s Act compels teachers to behave responsibly both in school and even on social media.
“The Act gives us power to monitor the conduct of teachers, as the TSC we are thinking of starting to monitor what teachers exchange on social media. If you post irresponsible information on social media, such things do not show good conduct,” she said.
PROMOTION OR EMPLOYMENT
She warned that Commission through its corporate affairs and communication department will be checking the kind of information that teachers post on social media before they are invited for interview for promotion or employment.
