Relieve for Parents as KICD Warns Teachers Against Giving Unreasonable Assignments to Students

When the implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum began, parents complained that the curriculum was too expensive with teachers giving out assignments that seemed to be costly to parents.

In some schools, especially those owned by private investors, teachers could arrange too many fied trips for students at the expense of struggling students.

The ministry of Education through Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development has come to the rescue of parents. Addressing private schools owners and other stakeholders in Mombasa, the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development Chief Executive Officer Mr Charles Ong'ondo warned teachers against giving unreasonable costly assignments to students.

"Instead of using locally available resources, some teacher in private schools have been giving students unreasonable assignments. This should immediately stop," he said.

He encouraged teachers to utilize the internet and look for materials that students can use to study at lower costs. The government has made it clear that the curriculum will be fully implemented despite resistance from the politicos.
