How Tanzanians Have Reacted to CBC Curriculum Vs Kenyans Reaction

Tanzanians have reacted to Kenya's Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).

CBC is a new system of education embraced as the current curriculum through the Curriculum Development team (KICD)

Launched in 2017, CBC was weaved together to uphold the significance of skills development and applying competencies acquired from School to real-life situations.


Today morning, a media house operating in Tanzania - clouds media- engaged the online community by posing a question on their awareness of the CBC.

The tweet read as seen in the screenshot above.

Tanzanians have praised the Kenyan move to embrace the new curriculum. Nearly all of them have mentioned how the curriculum is beneficial in equipping the child with cutting edge skills that are not only relevant but easily acquirable.

With CBC having the potential of offering benefits to the learner, parents and teachers, Tanzanians believe it is a curriculum worth having in their country. Aside from that, some explained how the new curriculum helps in making learners be of sound knowledge.

Despite being approved by the education ministry, CBC has been met with overlapping criticisms. Many Kenyans are slow in acknowledging that the curriculum is learner-focused, balanced and allows the learners to be exemplary in decision making.

As Tanzanians praise and acknowledge the same, Kenyans continue to point out errors that can't be overlooked in the system. Teachers through blogger Mutai Mtandao have been expressing disappointment towards the curriculum. According to them, as seen in the screenshot above, teachers are far from being prepared to implement CBC.

For curriculum expert Dr Hilary Barchok, the new curriculum is more of a looming disaster because, he continues to claim, that it was founded on a wrong premise.

The curriculum expert has said that CBC lacks a clear philosophical foundation that would allow it to attain its full potential.
