Primary Education


Competency Based Curriculum To Be Challenged In Court

Since the inauguration of the pilot class in the year 2017, there has been a public outcry from parents to the government blaming the education sector for not looking for ways to mitigate the challenges which have been brought by the new Competency-Based Curriculum.

During the recently concluded half term, most parents complained about books which they were required to buy before their children resumed studies. The prices of the books were ridiculously high and some of them could not even be found in the bookstores.

Parents also complained about being required to aid their kids in doing assignments. Owing to the bad economy in the country as a result of the pandemic, parents are now expected to work very hard to make both ends meet. This results in fatigue and most parents crave a hot shower before jumping into bed. However, thanks to the CBC, parents now have to assist their kids to draw patterns and some other educational stuff.

Due to public outcry, LSK President Nelson Havi has now promised Kenyans that he will file a lawsuit against the education system of the country challenging the CBC. In his post, he said that education should not be an expensive, inefficient, and ineffective experiment with our children and their future.

Some of the challenges which the education sector is yet to resolve include.

Inadequate human resources. The number of teachers in schools is still low as compared to the number of students who are being admitted.

Inadequate learning and teaching materials. Books that were promised to be delivered to schools are yet to be delivered among other teaching materials.
