Plans are in place to review the CBC curriculum. Basic Education Principal Secretary Julius Jwan stated on Tuesday that the new curriculum will be reviewed in 2023. The exercise will address any challenges identified since its rollout in 2018.
Jwan said the research will be conducted to determine the teething problems encountered five years into the system. A move intended to help arrive at a satisfactory permanent solution.
Speaking in Nairobi at the Kenya Editors Guild, he had this to say about the progress of the CBC implementation, “If you look at the conception of curriculums around the world, most countries review their curriculum on a year to year basis. Naturally, Unesco requires that after every five years we look at what we have introduced, what are the teething problems."
The outcome of the research is set to determine the future of the new curriculum. His statement comes amidst a torrent of criticism and uproar from disgruntled teachers and parents who believe implementing the new curriculum is demanding and unreasonable. The new education system has elicited mixed reviews all over the country. The Law Society of Kenya recently made known of its intentions to challenge it in court.
However, Education CS George Magoha has rubbished the negative backlash and maintains that the new system is here to stay. He dismissed the counterblast terming it as mere fuss set in motion by novices with no expertise in education matters.
A lot is in development to ensure a smooth running of the CBC curriculum. Magoha also urged parents and teachers to embrace it and strive to create a receptive environment for all learners.
