The Kenyan government decided to review the curriculum for its learners. It was observed that the 8-4-4 system had outlived it's usefulness. A taskforce formed by the president proposed that the government should adopt the competency based curriculum. The curriculum was running on a pilot phase and is expected to present its first lot in grade six next year. However the taskforce is compiling its findings to be presented to the president. Various education stakeholders have also been giving their views on the effectiveness of the pilot phase.
However, there has been a lot of complaints from Kenyans about the curriculum. Parents have been lamenting about the expense for running cbc as well as the nature of the assignments that learners are given. This prompted the Law society of Kenya to come to their rescue. The LSK chairperson, Nelson Havi, filled a petition in court to challenge it. However, the education cabinet secretary, Professor George Magoha, has this evening broken his silence about the same. The education cs has been defending the curriculum saying that it was the best for kenyan children. Magoha has asked those opposed to the curriculum to meet him in court and elaborate how it has affected the Kenyan child. "For those who are against cbc, let's meet in court. You should demonstrate how the curriculum has negatively affected the Kenyan child." Magoha said when he met the education stakeholders in Nairobi today. Nelson Havi is set to present his evidence in court soon as most Kenyans await. Do you think that the competency based curriculum is the best for young Kenyan children?
