The introduction of the Competency Based Curriculum(CBC) was considered as one of the best move in the education sector as it was aimed at identifying learners strengths and base their studies in that given area. Since its introduction, the CBC has received a lot of criticism, especially from parents and other stakeholders who have argued that the system is expensive and that teachers are ill prepared for its roll-out.
After months of push and pull, today the Education Ministry through the Education Cabinet Secretary Proff George Magoha has finally bowed to pressure from different stakeholders and has commenced the review of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC). Making the announcement, the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) CEO Charles Ong’ondo announced to the public that all concerns raised by parents, teachers and the public at large will be addressed.
"Our review cycle comes next year as we finish Grade 6 and by 2023-2024, we believe that there are aspects of the curriculum that we shall have reviewed, not reformed," Ong'ondo said in a press.
The sentiments come at a time a lawyer had moved to court to compel the government to suspend the system until all the issues have been raised by the parents and other stakeholders are addressed.
What do you think about the CBC, should it be crabbed or given a trial?
