“I don’t think anyone will be able to stop this because in two months we shall have the pioneer CBC Grade Six and it would be insane to think that these students would be taken to the old system.

 

He went on to say that the first phase of the country’s construction of junior high school classes was nearing completion and that Ksh3.2 billion had been set aside for the project.

 

He did, however, reveal that school construction would be paused during the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination, which is set to begin in March.

 

“Our original target for the completion of the classrooms was April but we brought it to March. I can categorically say that they will be done before the first week of the examinations in March and we shall have completed 6467 classrooms.

“Don’t forget that there is another year which will allow the government to buildings another 10,000 classrooms. Students are not going to move to Grade Seven and Eight together,” he stated.
