Days after the publication of the initial report by the President’s Task Force, the educators have identified four critical areas that must be addressed by the government before the Competency Curriculum (KBK) is passed.
Teachers who have not received funding from the National Government’s Regional Development Fund have appealed to the media and warned of the plight of private schools.
He pointed out that such an agency would have to fully foot the bill to meet CBC standards.
It also questioned whether there was a shortage of teachers in certain areas, despite assurances from the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) that 30,000 teachers would be recruited and placed.
Teachers wonder if teachers will be given the opportunity to adapt to the new curriculum.
“I know that the government will provide funding for public schools to meet school curriculum requirements. However, private institutions, especially non-secondary institutions, will be forced to spend more resources to determine what is needed.
“Also, there are concerns about the category of secondary school teachers who will be led. If we have a secondary school in the primary class, the workforce will have to change to manage the new curriculum,” Yusuf Amolo, a teacher at St. Petersburg Primary School, told the media.
After the task force published the CBC’s findings and recommendations, plans were immediately put in place to ensure a smooth transition.
On Friday, December 2, Vice President Rigathi Gachagua challenged members of parliament to speed up plans to develop additional facilities in primary schools.
Speaking to the people of Murang’a District, “In the CDF, we ask the members of parliament from 290 constituencies to open secondary schools and laboratories, classrooms and offices as soon as possible. JSS is used for one year.”
In addition, some Azimio MPs want the CBC report to be made public in full to dispel any concerns about curriculum practices.
“The government should have a clear and consistent policy, especially on important issues like education. You can keep the country in limbo on important issues like curriculum changes.
