"This Is The Best Curriculum" Nicholas Maiyo Supports CBC While It Remains A Nightmare To Parents

Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) is the Kenya's new system of education currently being tested on grade four students. It's more of being practical on real life situations especially current affairs in the society.

Compared the 8-4-4 system which is theoretical, CBC seems to be better but tiresome to students and parents. Most people don't understand what exactly it means and this has attracted different reactions especially on the parents side. 

Today during an interview with Citizen TV, Chairman of the Parents National Association Nicholas Maiyo seemed to support the system. He said that CBC is the best curriculum Kenya has ever had since it's electrical engine while 8-4-4 is a steam engine."

Some netizens disagreed with Maiyo's opinion by sending the following tweets. This shows there's no unity in pushing CBC. It's kinda a nightmare to many parents who are worried about their children's future. 

This comes along when parents are raising their complains that the system is interfering with their schedules. Teachers are giving pupils practicals to do at home with the help of parents who at the same time are busy at work.

We've also seen videos of the pupils learning very funny things which have sparked reactions and hidden mysteries behind the kind of being education offered. 

However, the ministry still encouraging Kenyans to remain calm as they evaluate the best system and make it useful. CS Magoha shrugged shoulders against the accusations that he is a founder of CBC. But we still hope that this issue will be settled down soon.
