KNEC to be Renamed as Kenya National Assessment Council (KNAC)
KNEC to be Renamed as Kenya National Assessment Council (KNAC). If the suggestions made by the presidential task group on education are accepted and put into action, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) will alter its name to reflect the CBC curriculum.
The name of the Kenya National Assessment Council (KNAC) will replace the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
The party suggests that secondary school students have choices for the courses that will shape their future jobs as part of the modifications associated with the switch to CBC.
At the O-level, students will be forced to select combinations like English or Kiswahili, Math or Science, and any other five topics; this will be accompanied by a decrease in the number of subjects at the Junior Secondary School level.
The country’s educational system has received numerous proposals from the Presidential Working Group on Education Reforms.
The elimination of secondary school categorisation and prerequisites for career-related subjects are among the recommendations.
The Working Party on Education Reforms is wrapping up its work with a flurry of proposals that could change everything from early childhood education to higher education with just a few days left in its term.
The Working Party suggested during a meeting with stakeholders earlier this week that the 8-4-4 system phase out the current classification of secondary schools as National, Extra County, County, and Sub-County schools; under the CBC system, the schools will be categorized in accordance with the learners’ career pathways.
The party has also asked the KICD to scale back the number of junior high school learning zones. Currently, there are fourteen subjects that students must study.
The party also wants the university curriculum to be in line with the CBC curriculum to ease the transfer.
