The Kenyan government through the ministry of education rolled out the new competency based curriculum. Even with the roll out, the curriculum has faced much criticism from parents and teachers. Of course it should noted that CBC is one of the best curriculums that Kenya can have. This is the type of curriculum that can transform a learner into a future key instrumental person in the society.
But again it should be noted that the curriculum did not pass through the correct piloting before being implemented. The government hurriedly forced the implementation of the curriculum hence making it seem as a burden to teachers and parents.
This then means that the government could have first done a full training of the current teachers in the field and on the same note roll out traing in all the training collages across the country for those joining the teaching course. This then could follow with a correct mapping for the piloting process. Keeping in mind that all regions in Kenya are not the same. This could give a clear picture of how the implementation process would take. Afterwhich the government would invest in improving structures in school and employing enough teachers. Since the curriculum is much demanding and requires that a teacher can only deal with upto a maximum of 30 learners.
After all this then the government could provide enough learning materials to various schools and start the implementation process gradually. Unfortunately the government has not done all these. This has now led to the current conflict between parents, teachers and the ministry of education. This then means that Kenya is still not ready for the new curriculum and that it should follow the correct procedure and avail all the necessity before its fully implementation.
