The Kenyans in the past a few weeks on social media have criticized the implementation of the new 2-6-3-3 curriculum system popularly known as the Competency Based Curriculum CBC. The parents complained that the curriculum is very expensive as compared to the former 8-4-4 curriculum.
Last week, the Law Society of Kenya President Nelson Havi filed a suit against the Government of Kenya, Ministry of Education and Kenya Institution of Curriculum Development against the further implementation of the curriculum. According to Nelson Havi, the curriculum does not suit the needs of the child and the society at large.
However, the National Parents Association Chairman Nicholas Maiyo on Monday while addressing the press at KICD vowed to match to court to defend the CBC. Maiyo said that the CBC enables children to realize their talents early, hence preparing them to be productive members of the society as they grow up.
This was a bombshell to parents and Kenyans who had thought to get a relieve. Upon learning that there is a group against the case presented to court, majority of Kenyans felt dissatisfied and wanted to know the person who elected them to represent the parents at the national level. Here are some of the heated reactions.
