Good News To Teachers, Students And Parents As The Government Rolls Out Construction of Classrooms

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.
