Education Ministry through the Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has finally bowed to pressure from different stakeholders and has commenced the review of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
On Saturday, 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.
Further, he outlined the process stating the first review process will be targeting pre-primary up to grade 3 and is already on the move and is set to be completed by January 2021.
"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 addressed the press in Naivasha.
The Ministry’s reaction comes a day after Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi vowed to sue the Education Ministry and CS over CBC implementation.
According to Havi, CBC model is draining parents money, teachers’ time and not important to students hence should not be implemented.
