The new Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) requires the existing boarding and day secondary schools, to admit learners transiting from Grade Six to Grade Seven, based on guidelines to be provided by the ministry of education. Therefore, Prof George Magoha, CS Education has declared that, as the new admission of Grade 7 learners to Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) sets in, JSS will be offered in both boarding and day secondary schools countrywide.
According to prof Magoha, the government has sought to ensure hundred percent transition by ensuring construction of 10,000 classrooms and rolling out training of secondary school teachers to better handle learners. On that note the CS Education has pleaded private schools in urban areas, to set up JSS to provide chances for learners to ensure transition from primary to secondary level.
Prof Magoha while addressing the 9th Zamara Annual Retirement Conference at a Malindi hotel in Kilifi county, equally pointed out that, the ministry of education has identified 1,500 primary schools that will host JSS which will be supplied with adequate learning and teaching facilities and land for physical expansion. Finally, the CS conclusively assured Kenyans and particularly learners, parents and teachers that implementation of CBC is on course and that systems and structures for the transition from primary to junior secondary are in action.
