*fate of junior secondary schools takes a new twist following the latest update*

The Ministry of Education under the leadership of professor George Magoha has been working round the clock to ensure that education system is improved and standardized.


Education stakeholders suggested the change of curriculum from the long time 8:4:4 system to the new Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) which has already been implemented.


The place of Junior Secondary School under the CBC has however remained a sticky issue last year as the debate on the new curriculum has taken a centre stage.


Under the 2-6-3-3-3 education system, learners will spend two years in pre primary education, six in primary school, three in junior secondary school and another three in senior secondary school.


Even after a government task force recommended this level of education is domiciled in secondary schools, reference was still made on the role of primary schools in the transition.


However, the push to have this level of education anchored in primary school may spill over to next year as the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has made a fresh call to the government to reconsider the placement.
