Sharing is Caring

President William Ruto will form a team whose role is to review the Competence Based Curriculum (CBC). He assured to involve all stakeholders to determine effectiveness of the curriculum.


“Public participation is critical in this matter, I will establish an education reform task force in the presidency which will be launched in the coming weeks,” announced Dr Ruto.


CBC has already been implemented in the country to gradually replace the existing 8-4-4 system. However, there has been outcries by parents that the curriculum is pushing them to the edge.


Parents claim that CBC burdens them with homework and other learning materials to facilitate the new curriculum.


The country is currently a nightmare on how it will admit the 8-4-4 system students to secondary and Grade six CBC student to junior secondary all at the same time.


Ruto during his inauguration speech, assured that the matter will be solved.


“We are particularly alive to the anxieties of parents on the twin transition of the last 8-4-4 class and the first CBC class in January next year, I assure all that there will be a solution of the matter before then,” said the President.


However, incumbent Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha claimed that classrooms to accommodate the junior secondary had been completed. Over 10,000 classrooms have been constructed.


Magoha urged the incoming government not to abolish the curriculum but make improvements. President William Ruto’s government also has the agenda of ensuring that the type of education administered to Kenyan children is knowledge, skill, competence and value based.


Meanwhile, the former President Uhuru Kenyatta claimed CBC as one of the milestones his government achieved.
