Fresh Twist as Teachers, Parents Hit Out at President Ruto's CBC Directive

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has hit out at President William Ruto over his Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) taskforce.

KUPPET has argued that parents, students and teachers should have representation on the 49-member taskforce unveiled by the Head of State.

The union further argued that the three categories had experienced CBC first hand and would provide valuable feedback to the team.

KUPPET chairman further added that teachers representation should be drawn from KUPPET as well as Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) for more apt feedback.

For parents, KUPPET argued that they had been concerned with its implementation and stopped the President during his campaign period demanding the curriculum rollout to be revised.

The President gazetted the Working Party Education Reform on Friday, September 30, paving the way for CBC review.

Among the key areas, he tasked the team to evaluate, included the examination system, transition structures and teachers' deployment.

He argued that the findings would be implemented to make CBC more affordable and accessible to all students.
