Prof Charles Ong’ondo, CEO of the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, warned on Monday that reversing CBC would be costly in many ways.

In an interview with the Star, he said that every education reform has “teething problems” and “some discomfort.”

“Reversing CBC is like saying we do away with the 2010 Constitution or uproot the standard gauge railway. We would lose more than Sh200 billion invested in CBC so far,” Professor Ong’ondo said.

According to the KICD director, the government implemented CBC after extensive stakeholder consultations in response to the needs of the twenty-first century in terms of creativity, imagination, and digital literacy.

Ruto’s new Kenya Kwanza Alliance partners, Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Moses Wetang’ula (Ford Kenya) have promised to abolish the CBC if they form the government.

It’s unclear whether they’d be able to do so without causing havoc.

Musalia and Wetang’ula continued their assault on CBC on Monday.

“Our government has introduced something strange to our students, ministers, teachers, pupils and parents. They don’t understand this curriculum, we shall do away with CBC when we form the government,” Wetang’ula said.

 

However, Professor Ong’ondo cautioned that, while there are challenges, reversing CBC would be costly because the government has already invested heavily in reforming even teacher training colleges.

 

Akelo Misori, secretary-general of the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers, has warned politicians against using curriculum reform as part of their campaign agenda.

 

“Most of the presidential aspirants talking about changes in education are out to massage the ego of the electorate,” Misori said.

 

The Kuppet boss questioned why some presidential candidates had suddenly begun opposing CBC when they had previously failed to make recommendations for its improvement.

 

Misori said they should not mislead the public by claiming to be angels because there has already been effort and investment in the current system.

 

According to Misori, it would be easier to make changes in the future than to reverse them. If you undo it, he says, the program will be more expensive and difficult to implement.
