The new education curriculum , Curriculum Based Competency (CBC) which is to replace 8-4-4 has faced a lot of criticism from various stakeholders. Parents and a section of Kenyans have accused the government of forcing to the pupils the education system that is expensive for parents to manage.
The president of law society of Kenya, Nelson Havi last week filed a petition in court to challenge the implementation of this curriculum citing a number of issues that is yet to be addressed.
There has been a lot of information circulating on social media on the assignment given to the pupils which needs parent involvement.
As reported by the People's Daily newspaper. The chief executive of KICD Charles Ong'ondo says the parents are not supposed to do the assignment meant for the pupils but instead should just direct their children on how to accomplish a given task.
Mr. Ong'ondo says the new system unlike the former requires parent involvement in the education of his/her child.
