Before revising the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) system, principals urge President William Ruto to set up adequate structures and table clear financial modules.
In a speech given on Monday, September 19th, Kahi Indimuli, chairman of the Kenya Secondary’s Heads Associations (KSSHA), emphasized the need for the government to provide assurance to school heads on transition plans, CBC finance, and capacity development.
The CBC framework, quality assurance, and the interpretation of the curriculum are all areas where principals would want more certainty.
Principals are generally concerned about the amount of time it will take to execute the recommendations of the CBC task group that Ruto established to examine the curriculum. Kahi claimed that the time period does not allow for a thorough system upgrade, particularly considering that the first class is slated to transition in January 2023.
To eliminate ambiguity, he suggested that Ruto’s administration give top priority to the concerns raised by school administrators.
Kahi also noted that making a choice too quickly might dilute the gains earned and cause a problem before the next school year.
The education system will be reviewed by President William Ruto in order to better meet the needs of the market and protect parents from the exorbitant expenditures involved.
