President William Ruto went through the interim report of the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform (PWPER) with the team after receiving it on Thursday at the State House.
The panel was reportedly instructed by the president to provide him the best recommendations for the country.
He turned to the crowd and questioned, "How did we get here?"
The Saturday Nation has access to certain meeting specifics that have not yet been made public.
More work will be required than merely keeping students in basic schools.
Less subjects than those listed in the Basic Education Curriculum Framework will be required of JSS students (BCEF).
The PWPER noted that several learning areas overlapped and advised that comparable topics be grouped and taught together.
The BCEF offers 12 required and elective subjects. English, Kiswahili or Kenya Sign Language, mathematics, integrated science, home science, pre-tech and pre-career education, social studies, religion, business, agriculture, life skills, and physical education are considered core subjects.
He urged Kenyans to embrace the idea of parental engagement and mentioned that parents have requested a decrease in their involvement in their children's education.
