The newly enrolled education system (CBC) resembles the education system in the Republic of Mexico. The competency-based curriculum which has already reached the level of grade five has been received with mixed reactions in the country raising a lot of questions about whether it is going to be successful or not.
Due to its resemblance with the Mexican education system, the ministry of education was compelled to carry out a benchmark to execute what really Kenya lack and what they can borrow from the country’s education system without crushing on the process of implementation.
Quality education solely relies on the education system. The success of the new curriculum (CBC) will inspire Kenyan citizens to learn, and acquire necessary skills for the ever-evolving society.
In early 2020 the ministry of education sent a team of exclusive cooperates to Mexico to learn more about how to successfully implement the newly enrolled furculum with failing on the way.
The report with was presented by the special benchmarking team was received with jubilation by parents teachers and hence long for full incorporation to the CBC. According to the report, the education system in Mexico is completely funded by the government and compulsory. Children are also entitled to enroll in any course of their desire.
Additionally, the team noted that teachers and medical officers are highly regarded and remunerated in Mexico. The least paid teacher is said to receive 13000 MXN (about Ksh 70 000) per month while the highest-paid teacher earns about 41000 MXN (about Ksh 240,000). It much is borrowed from the Mexican education system, teachers will be among the first beneficially.
Another good thing is borrowed will boost the morale of teachers is salary review and promotion. Unlike Kenya, salary increment in Mexico for teachers was not affected due to hard economic times due to the covid-19 pandemic.
