The education sector in kenya has been facing great challenges for the past few years after the introduction of a new curriculum. In attempts to remove the 8.4.4 education system, the ministry came up with a new curriculum known as Competence Based Curriculum .
Curriculum went through a piloting stage and is now slowly rooting deeper. It began with the class four pupils under the piloting stage, who are now currently known as the grade four.
This curriculum is meant to face off the 8.4.4 education system in kenya. It is almost getting to high school, where it says students from grade 6 will join junior secondary school.
However, the CBC has faced great resistance from kenyan parents. Parents and teachers are now against it claiming its just too tiresome for them.
A parent has boldly moved to court to challenge the implementation of this curriculum in Kenya claiming that its economically straining parents.
The parent who goes by the name Ang'awa has moved to court seeking it to suspend further steps towards implementation of the basic education curriculum framework, Competence Based Curriculum.
He has also blamed and faulted the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development for failing to demonstrate and proof to kenyans that it initiated and conducted research before bringing it on board.
Through her lawyer Nelson Havi, Ang'awa claims that the legal framework necessary for the change of the system and structure of education from 8-4-4 and the adoption of the CBC curriculum recommended to Education Cabinet Secretary for education George Magoha and Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development by the National Assembly has not been put in place to date. He also added that CBC is a very expensive education system for a developing nation like kenya.
