CS Maghoha Breaks His Silence on CBC Amid Numerous Cries From Parents

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Maghoha has finally broken his silence over Competence Based Carriculum (CBC) education system amid numerous cries from parents and other stakeholders.

The CBC was unveiled in the country in 2017/2018 financial year to replace the old 8-4-4 system. The move was aimed at changing the education system from the then ranking system which was claimed to produce half baked students. Implementation of the 2-6-3-3 CBC system was flagged in 2018 and has been adopted in all learning institutions.

The system has however been receiving opposition from parents and other education stakeholders. Parents have been lamenting that the system is so demanding in terms of time and money. They have been forced to buy alot of equipments to be used in the learning process which have costed them quite a fortune. Learners are also being given assignments which requires much of the parents' attention which majority lack.

Former Secretary General of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Wilson Sossion has been in the forefront in advocating for the abolishment of the CBC system claiming that the government was not prepared. Other leaders including the former Kakamega County Senator Boni Khalwale has called the government to revert the system to 8-4-4 which has reigned for more than 32 years.

CS Maghoha has however claimed that nothing is perfect and so the CBC. He defended himself claiming that the system was launched in 2018 even before he assumed the office of the Cabinet Secretary Education.

Parents will therefore have to bear with system and soon they will get used to it.
