The ministry of education is keen on ensuring that the new CBC curriculum whose pioneer pupils are in grade five succeeds.
Next year, the pupils will be sitting for their first summative evaluation exams which will be administered by KNEC.
The pupils then will proceed to junior secondary schools in January 2023 as the phasing out of 8-4-4 system nears completion.
Part of the challenges the ministry had foreseen was inadequate classroons for the learners.
In response to that, the president allocated Ksh 8 billion for the construction of over 10000 classroons covering the first phase.
On Wednesday, the cabinet Secretary for education professor George magoha has announced the commencement of the project that is expected to be completed by next year.
Cases of pupils and teachers taking their lessons under trees aren't new in Kenya owing to increased number of learners.
In some schools like the one shown here, learners are forced to take their lessons in a mud walled classroons while sitted down.
The move by the government will be good news to teachers, students and parents who are directly affected by poor infrastructure.
It now remaims to be seen whether the project will be completed in time before pupils reach junior secondary schools.
