Why Parents, Teachers And Other Stakeholders Are Required To Support CBC By Both Hands In Kenya.

CBC whose full meaning is Competency Based Curriculum is a new curriculum that was researched and developed by KICD (Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development). It was introduced in Kenya in the year 2018 with the intention of making education more open to vocational training and improving the development of self-expression, self-discipline and independence.

CBC has three main pillars that is skill, knowledge and attribute. CBC is more practical oriented compared to 8-4-4 system which is concerned with only cognitive domain of education. As compared to the outgoing 8-4-4 curriculum where learners used to take a minimum of 16 years in school, in CBC learners will only take 14 years in school.

In CBC, the class takes up to 3 years for grade 10, grade 11 and grade 12. At senior school the learner already specializes in studies in line with their areas of interest. CBC will also do away with the frequent seen cases of burning and vandalising school property by students due to examination phobia.

CBC has specialized subjects such as Environmental Education which used not to be there in 8-4-4 system. Through this core subject, learners have come to realize and appreciate the importance of environmental conservation and maintenance. This will help in solving some of the global environmental issues such as global warming, melting of polar icecaps, soil erosion and air pollution.

In a nutshell, all parents, teachers and other stakeholders should support CBC to facilitate liberation of Kenya's economic, social and political sectors.
