The Government is determined to make sure that each and every Kenyan child not only gets the basic knowledge but also a worthwhile knowledge that is full of skills.For along period of time,the 8.4.4 Education system has been accused of putting more emphasis on rote knowledge.This in most cases has seen students get judged in the societies based on what they scored in schools instead of the actual skills that they learnt.
The new CBC curriculum is expected to bring a complete overhaul on this perception.Students are expected to acquire skills that will see them sail through in their lives.
Education CS Professor George Magoha will have the next 45 days as important and busiest days for him in the office.The CBC case is in the court.A verdict is expected within these 45 days.The most important thing here is that the verdict will come after CS Magoha has presented his Research and Report before the court.Three days ago,his lawyer Phillip Murgor hinted that he was considering going for in-person appearances by the mentioned parties.Meaning the CS may appear in person in the court.Bottom left corner of the Sunday Nation reveals about the report and the research from the CS.
The CS has to convince the court that in deed a change in the system was necessary.Just recently,the parents cried foul of the expensive nature of the curriculum through the assignments.This was later followed by Magoha's directives to teachers to use projectors instead of printed materials.With some schools in dilapidated states with neither Learners Digital Devices nor electricity,the CS must prepare to convince the court adequately.His weak presentation will break the much already achieved in the CBC curriculum.That aside,the biting shortage of teachers in schools especially the secondary schools is another issue.With cases of insufficient trainings of teachers and the huge workloads in schools,Magoha has to put up a spirited defence that will make the CBC a reality instead of breaking its implementation process.
