While speaking to the press on Tuesday, September 14, the Cabinet Secretary of Education Professor George Magoha addressed the issue of the new curriculum, Competency Based Curriculum that has been receiving massive critics from the general public over the basis that it's cumbersome, expensive and time consuming.
However, Professor Magoha has admitted that the Competency Based Curriculum is not perfect. This has resulted to lots of reactions from Kenyans over his admission concerning CBC as they argue particularly on its effectiveness.
The first group of learners to learn under the new system are currently at grade four implying that it's yet to be formally evaluated to check its workability depending on the outputs it will produce.
With that, Kenyans are now saying that of what the Cabinet Secretary is saying concerning ty imperfection of CBC is a reality then it should have not been put into practice.
In my opinion, Kenyans should remain patient with the new curriculum until it's evaluated to check its effectiveness in the country. It is still early to throw it away before it's know how better it can be in terms of helping our children.
