Magoha Replies To Parents And Headteachers Protests On CBC Grade 4 Exams.

The CBC grade 4 Exams nationwide which sparked alot of protests from heads of schools and parents about it's expensive demands forced CS Magoha to retaliate and defend the system.

According to parents, their children were being pushed to purchase some items that were not listed by Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) for the Competency-Based-Curriculum (CBC).

The school heads on the other hand had complained about the slowness of the KNEC's internet speed which led to huge qeueus in cyber cafes which later forced others to travel for almost 100km to access better network.

In his response the CS said that no one is supposed to pressure children as they are just sitting for their assessment tests and not examinations. Even parents must stop putting pressure on the learners because these are not the main examinations.

He also added that KNEC had already provided guidelines on this important assessment, which is part of the successful implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum.

According to the guidelines tests should be conducted during normal class hours and all learners should not be put under any tense atmosphere.
