The presidential task force on education reforms says Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) is not all about Junior Secondary, but rather runs across the education system from Pre-Primary, Primary, and Secondary up to University.
Speaking on Thursday during a courtesy call to Nakuru Deputy Governor David Kones in his office, the members led by Fr. Professor Stephen Mbugua said the public has had a bad notion about the CBC.
“CBC is not the Primary or Secondary as people have said, but rather it is right from pre-primary to university education” said Fr.Mbugua.
The team has already visited Samburu, Laikipia Counties.
In Nakuru County the team shall be visiting various institutions to get views on the CBC and the legal frameworks as they would like to have it.
The curriculum has received equal measure of praise and criticism.
It should be noted that foundation education is devolved and counties have a mandate to make sure that it works.
Nakuru Deputy Governor David Kones on his part emphasised on the need to have education system checked to suite the requirements of the country.
“Changing the system should not burden the learners, teachers and parents. Of concern is also whether the system needs an overhaul or not, are the personnel trained?” he stated.
The DG outlined that the county has a program on ECD where learners are served with lunch with adequate teachers as well as reduced maximum distance between ECD centres.
