Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has moved over 2,600 classroom in its new reshuffle.
These include both primary and secondary school heads.
A good number of the affected heads, according to our media house are those who have stayed long in their former schools.
Also those who have been transferred had barely two years in their previous stations after having been moved from their home counties and before the reshuffle.
Thos new move has also seen various deputy heads promoted to principals and headmasters.
In this month the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) vowed to oppose any attempts by TSC to transfer headteachers working in their home schools.
The Transfer letters for the primary heads are already in circulation since Monday.
The teachers affected should report in their new stations as from next week.
Those affected are 1,010 secondary school heads and 1,621 primary school heads.
Previously the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) had urged TSC to ensure that the transfers were conducted in a humane way.
Kuppet said that they fully supported the move, but it would be advisable for several factors to be considered.
According to our reporters, the factors raised included age, marital status, health, as well as other concerns which might affect teachers socially.
