The Ministry of Education, through the Cabinet Secretary of the Ministry of Education, George Magoha, has finally gave in to pressure from various stakeholders and has started reviewing the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
On Saturday, Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) CEO Charles On’gondo announced to the public that all concerns raised by parents, teachers and the public at large would be addressed.
Further, he outlined the process saying that the first review process will target pre-primary up to grade 3 and is already progressing and is scheduled to be completed by January 2021.
“Our review cycle comes next year as we finish Grade 6 and by 2023-2024, we believe there are aspects of the curriculum that we would have reviewed, not improved, on,” On’gondo addressed the press in Naivasha .
The ministry’s response comes after Nelson Havi, president of the Law Society of Kenya, vowed to sue the Ministry of Education and CS over the CBC implementation.
According to Havi, the CBC model is wasting parents’ money, teachers’ time and is not important for the students so it should not be implemented at all.
Do you support the review of the CBC curriculum or you agree with the implementation?. Feel free to share your thoughts below in the comment section.
