Teachers in public schools in Kenya have had a major victory, after three weeks of icy relations with the government. It took three weeks of coercion and intimidation. The government threatened to fire them, hire trainees and recall retirees, but now the teachers finally have their pay deal. It’s not what they had asked for and not nearly enough to cushion against hard economic times and inflation, but to them, it’s a start, a sign that they have been heard.
