Education Cabinet Secretary (CS) Professor George Maghoha has defended the current Competency Based Curriculum arriculum (CBC) education system claiming it's one of the legacies President Uhuru will leave behind. The CS claimed that the system is so far the best for the country while rubbishing the old 8-4-4 system.
Teachers have been doing everything for the parents in the old 8:4:4 system of education. However, with Competency Based Curriculum, CBC, the table has been turned. The new system requires almost three-quarter of parents' involvement in the learning process of their children. Teachers work has now been reduced to be that of an instructor.
The best thing that can happen to our children is getting an education and this will happen best by going back to school and not staying at home like it happened last year.Parents can agree with me on this since getting children back to school gives them ample to do more other things.
