National Parents Association To Defend CBC In Court

National parents association chairman Nicholas Maiyo has stated that the association will seek to join a case opposing the competency based curriculum that was introduced by the government through the ministry of education.

He added that the association will defend the new curriculum and support the project.He said that the association is concerned about the judicial decision that could disrupt education adding that their main aim of joining in the case is to represent a large number of children in both public and private schools.

National parents association chairman was speaking at the Kenya institute of curriculum development during a meeting that was called upon by education ministry with education stakeholders on the competency based curriculum.

A petition was filed at the court through the law society of Kenya president Nelson Havi.In the petition,he argued that action taken by the ministry of education to implement the new curriculum was against the constitution as there was no public participation or shareholders meeting called upon the introduction of the curriculum.

Esther Ang'awa seeks the court to stop the competency based curriculum pending hearing and determination of the case as she urges that the order will prevent further denial and violation of children rights to free compulsory basic education by the government.

The petitioner is seeking the ministry of education to revert the 8-4-4 system,as the new curriculum is under progress.Parents association chairperson dismissed claims by parents over implementation demands of the curriculum adding that they are not genuine parents.
