Today, over 1.6 million candidates are writing KPSEA exams that have kicked off today morning. The grade six pupils are writing the exam under the new education system known as Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
Today, during a live interview on Citizen television, Uasin Gishu county women representative Gladys Boss Shollei, has issued her stand that grade six candidates should remain in primary school to continue with their junior secondary education.
According to Shollei it's a harm for the young children of such age to transit to secondary schools. The lawmaker who also serves as the deputy speaker of the national assembly has said "Please do not take the small children to secondary schools. As a mother of two generations of children, I have seen the difference. You cannot put them together."
To conclude, this comes as the CBC education task force committee formed by president Ruto is set to give out it's report about the implementation of the new education system.
