President William Samoei Ruto on Sunday toured Homa Bay county where he attended a fellowship service at AIC Church in Homa Bay Town. The head of state later interacted with residents and engaged them on how he wanted to work with them in his administration.
While speaking in Homa Bay Town, President Ruto told residents that he has unveiled a special task force to look into matters affecting the Education system, especially the Competency-Based Curriculum.
The head of state assured residents that he is aware of the workload facing parents, especially at home when they are forced to do homework together with their children.
President Ruto later revealed that his administration is going to do away with the workload and homework that is accompanied by the Competency-Based Curriculum. However, CBC will not be abolished but proper streamlining is going to be done.
"On CBC, I hear parents are doing homework till 2 am in the morning, and women complain wondering what time will other things be done. We will reduce the homewodone by parents" he said.
This comes after the Kenya Kwanza administration unveiled a task force to review the CBC. During his inauguration speech, President William Ruto said that there was no public participation when CBC was introduced.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachugua while speaking in Kisumu during the Music Festival event urged parents and Kenyans to come out in large numbers to give their views on CBC when the task force will be moving across the country collecting opinions about CBC.
