Cabinet Secretary of Education,professor George Magoha has finally given in to the pressure from parents and stakeholders who claimed CBC education is too expensive,The Cabinet education Secretary together with the education ministry have decided to review the competency-based-curriculum(CBC).
Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) CEO Dr Charles Ong'ondo, on Saturday, September 18, reported that they were out to address all difficulties dependent on the input gave by pundits and partners.
The main audit measure targetting pre-primary up to Grade 3 is now in progress and was booked to be finished toward the beginning of January 2022.
"We have perused and watched you. An educational plan isn't fixed on stone. We are cognisant that after each cycle we should audit.
"Our audit cycle comes one year from now as we finish Grade 6 and by 2023-2024, we accept that there are parts of the educational plan that we will have checked on, not transformed," Ong'ondo tended to the press in Naivasha.
The Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum Instruction and Education Media at Moi University added that KICD had recognized the difficulties they were confronting and that the new inclusion of the CBC featured ill defined situations they should rapidly address.
"You have bumped us into upgrading our public partner's commitment. We will connect with guardians from everywhere the country on Monday, September 27 and authorities from Kenya Primary School Heads Teachers Association (KEPSHA) and Kenya Secondary School Heads Association (KESSHA) and Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT).
"We will likewise visit the inside or grassroots to meet guardians other than welcoming them to our consultative gathering," Ong'ondo expressed.
His comments came a couple of days in the wake of active Law Society of Kenya (LSK) President, Nelson Havi, documented a suit against CS Magoha and his Interior Ministry associate Fred Matiang'i over the execution of the CBC model.
Havi recorded the petition on Friday, September 17 looking to prevent the public authority from proceeding with the execution of CBC and to have Chief Justice Martha Koome designate a seat to decide the case.
The Education CS, on Tuesday, September 14, reprimanded Havi and other people who he affirmed were out to weaken changes and were constraining guardians into dismissing one of the key ventures that will shape President Uhuru Kenyatta's heritage.
"What is it they are looking at asserting that we should support the CBC? What they ought to do is challenge us to get the incentive for our cash. At the point when you open your mouth to tirade and seem as though you never went to class.
"For what reason should you go to court when you have 5 million students glad and prepared to draw in with the course. It is valid we have difficulties, yet how about you front them with the goal that we can examine? We have no statements of regret to make to anyone. CBC is staying put," Magoha repeated.
He added that guardians were at fault for CBC being costly as they enlisted students in non-public schools as opposed to public which are being managed.
Magoha requested schools to end interest for printing CBC content, expressing that mentors should extend the subjects in the study hall
