Fresh Twist as Headteachers Ask Government To Scrap CBC, Claims Learners Are Too Young To Transition

President William Ruto named a taskforce to review the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) that has faced resistance from a section of stakeholders, including parents.

The first-of-its-kind transition to Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) has faced hurdles with many questioning the measures put by the government.

The Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association (KESSHA) has called upon the Ministry of Education to halt the transition of Grade six learners to boarding schools.

Speaking at the Kenya School of Government to mark World Teachers' Day, KESSHA Chairperson Indimuli Kahi, argued that the pupils are too young to transition to boarding schools when most are used to private schools.

Indimuli dismissed claims of boarding schools offering top-notch education.

He opined that the young learners should remain in day schools and commute home like their counterparts in neighboring East African countries.

Grade Six pupils, who are CBC pioneer candidates will sit a national test in December before transitioning to Junior Secondary Schools in January 2023.
