"Take Me to Court, " Defiant CS Magoha Fires at Parents Fighting CBC, Reveals What Will Happen

George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has stated that he is prepared to defend the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) in court.

Professor Magoha defended the new educational system, claiming that it has a positive impact on the lives of students.Those who criticize the government, according to Magoha, must be sober and ready to implement the new curriculum.

"You have seen me in the slums because that's where my call is,to ensure equity in education. Kenya is not the richest country in Africa, but it devotes 29 percent of its budget to education," Magoha stated.

However, the CS acknowledged that the new curriculum has flaws and stated that it will be reviewed next year.


"Every effort is being made to ensure equity.The best teachers are the ones who teach their children at home. Stop demanding that parents be literate. My mother did not attend school, but she taught me and assisted me with my schoolwork," he continued.

The CS stated that the government is reversing the river's course to ensure that learners are impacted with skills rather than cramming for exams.

He chastised the 8-4-4 education system for being exam-focused. Prof Magoha stated that during his three years at the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec), he witnessed learners struggling to pass tests after being drilled.
