Days after President William Ruto promised to form a task force to review the competency-based curriculum introduced by former President Uhuru Kenyatta, Homabay Town constituency member of Parliament Hon. Peter Opondo Kaluma expressed his thoughts on the matter.
Taking to social media, the Orange Democratic Movement member of Parliament demanded that the syllabus be scrapped immediately and that the 8-4-4 system, which it had replaced, be reinstated.
Students taking their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, according to Kaluma, can be tested on practical subjects that the CBC had planned to introduce.
"Terminate CBC and reintroduce 8.4.4 content as originally planned. 8.4.4 trained students in Music & Music Instruments, Agriculture, Art, Craft, Masonry, Carpentry, Tailoring and Embroidery, Home Science, and other subjects at KCPE." The outspoken MP made the announcement on his social media pages.
Members of Parliament and other stakeholders remain divided on the issue, despite the fact that outgoing Education Cabinet Secretary professor George Magoha continues to advocate for full implementation.
