Secondary Education


CBC system of education has been termed as an expensive system in implementing it in Kenya

It is now almost 3 years since competency Based Curriculum (CBC) was implemented in Kenya. On the same platform junior secondary schools were introduced this year as the first set started on January as admissions kicked off on 31 January. The government under the leadership of president Ruto in coordination with the ministry of education under Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu have faced troubles under the system. Many Kenyans including the government servants like Members of Parliament and other experts have been urging the government to scrap the system.

On the other hand the system has become expensive as the government is facing shortage of teachers in Junior secondary schools. Teachers Service Commission has failed to promote graduate teachers to teach in junior secondary due to shortage of funds as the Commission asked the government for funds to use in promotions. Also parents had been asked to pay school fees due to the failure of the government to disburse the funds to the JSS in time as it has promised, purchase of new school uniforms and even textbooks which has totally turned the system to be expensive.
