Magoha Requests More Time From Incoming Administration To Finish CBC Classrooms. 

Prof. George Magoha, CS Education, is pushing for the incoming president to grant him extra time to oversee the building of CBC classrooms through to completion.

Magoha Requests More Time From Incoming Administration To Finish CBC Classrooms. 

The CS revealed that despite the Education Ministry being in the last phases of implementing the Competency-Based Curriculum, he still needs time under the next administration to ensure that all classrooms are finished.

“We intend to complete most of the CBC classrooms by election time, should there be a small balance, since I am not a politician, and you can judge me on that, only God knows who will be the president, I don't know and whoever comes in will be my commander in chief,” said Prof. Magoha.

 “I hope that before that person is sworn in, they can allow me to finish the remaining classrooms.”

“I stand guided if I’m allowed to continue, I shall continue to ensure that the classrooms are completed, if I’m guided to go and rest, then I will obey the command because I work at someone's command,” the CS added.

Beginning in January of next year, the first group of Grade 7 students will begin attending Junior Secondary schools as part of the CBC program but the ministry contends that the system lacks suitable fundamental structures.

There will be a transition for about 2.5 million children under the curriculum, which is still controversial among those involved in education and who have been urging the government to delay its implementation.

Following recent conflicts between CS Magoha and the political groupings opposed to the CBC system, President Uhuru Kenyatta declared during the Madaraka Day Celebrations on June 1 that the CBC deployment would proceed as planned.

The government, according to the president, has already set up procedures to ensure that the rollout won't stall even when his tenure ends in August.
