The ministry of education CS professor George Magoha has finally commenced the process of reviewing some critical areas in the new Competency-Based- Curriculum (CBC).
Professor Magoha has made this bold move to ease pressure from parents and stakeholders after they raised alarm on the expenses incurred in CBC by parents and the kind of assignments given to learners.
Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) CEO Dr Charles Ong’ondo on the 18th of this month announced that they are going to address all challenges based on the feedback issued by critics and stakeholders.
Dr Charles Ong’ondo further said that the first review process was scheduled to be completed in the first week of January 2022. According to Dr Charles, this first review process targets pre-primary up to grade 3.
“We have read and watched you. A curriculum is not fixed in stone. We are aware that we are supposed to review every cycle. By 2023-2024, we believe that there are aspects of the curriculum that shall have been identified will be subject to review process”. Ong’ondo said while addressing the press in Naivasha.
The move to commence the CBC review process comes after Lawyer Havi filed the petition on Friday, September 17 seeking to stop the government from continuing with the implementation of CBC.
Earlier Professor Magoha had laid blame on parents for the CBC expenses for they enrolled students in private schools rather than public which are being regulated by the government.
Professor Magoha went ahead to order schools to stop demanding printing services expenses from parents.
