The school reform group told the DP that removing the CBC would be costly for the government and parents. Dr. Ruto says the CBC is helpful, but the KKA will include community participation.
The strategy should be reviewed after five years, he said. Uhuru Kenyatta will leave the CBC. In January 2019, its first 7th graders will enroll. CBC's 25th anniversary. Unesco will evaluate after five years. DP says "now"
Former KKA projections called for disbanding the CBC and returning reinstating the 8-4-4 system. Dr. Ruto says the hybrid system combines knowledge, skills, and values. He guaranteed cost, suitability, quality, and availability.
According to The Daily Nation, the coalition plans to emphasize electives for K-8 students. A wise president wouldn't change the curriculum overnight. Done. The source said curriculums should include regular assessments. "CBC is in place, but we're letting the professional process happen," said another team member. George Magoha, the Education Cabinet Secretary, was happy CBC stayed on Wednesday.
Prof. Magoha asked Bungoma County students to speak out. Ruto signed a charter to strengthen Kenya's education. The ceremony was held yesterday in Nairobi. ANC's Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula were there. We'll expand CBC's utilization. The DP stated they'd discuss the issues.
CBC replaced 8-4-4 in 1985. Parents and teachers have differing viewpoints. Dissatisfaction has been claimed over resources, teacher training, grade transitions, and infrastructure. I'm glad lawmakers have finally grasped CBC's future. Our kids shouldn't be political pawns. Prof. Magoha said all major politicians should realize CBC's relevance to families.
We gathered material for four months before outlining the charter. Former Moi Vice-Chancellor Raphael Munavu led the group. Godfrey Nguru, Ruto's dissertation advisor, served. Nguru was Daystar University's v.c. Kenya Private Schools Association and University Academic Staff Union officials were present. Many collaborated to avoid government reprisals. As part of a higher education makeover, the University Funding Board, Tvet Funding Board, and Higher Education Loans Board may be merged into the National Skills Board. Dr. Ruto said this will help financially struggling public institutions. DP promises to launch Open University within 100 days if elected. Retirees have reduced tuition, better access, and more educational possibilities. Dr. Ruto's "targeted funding" strategy maintains professors' wages. He stated unemployed students can't access aid.
