The President expressed some reservations about the new Competence Based Curriculum during his inauguration at the Kasarani Stadium and promised to form a task team to conduct public participation to identify the niches.
Education stakeholders have already identified issues with the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) that they want to be addressed before the president even names the task team.
The National Parents Association, the Teachers Service Commission, and the church all favor keeping Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) in primary schools. Additionally, they want the government to be clear about the costs it will incur collectively and what the parent should bear.
It will be difficult for children entering junior secondary schools to cope with congested secondary schools, according to Kenya Parents Association Chairman Nicholas Maiyo, who also added that the youngsters still required parental supervision.
Collins Oyuu, the secretary general of the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), noted that there was no need for more infrastructure to be developed in secondary schools because primary schools still had their existing classrooms. The Junior Secondary Schools should continue to be primary schools, according to the KNUT secretary.
