President Uhuru Kenyatta to Launch the CBC Report at the KICC
The Head of State President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to launch the report on the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum on Tuesday.
President Uhuru will be launching the report submitted by a task force that was formed by the Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha in 2019; he will also be ironing transition issues under the new curriculum.
The task force was headed by Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Kenyatta University Fatuma Chege where the report is expected to give directions on how the pioneer class of the new CBC curriculum will proceed to join the secondary school.
The taskforce anticipated there will be a double entry intake to secondary schools i.e. those in class eight of 8-4-4 and those under the new curriculum.
The taskforce was also required to make recommendations on the infrastructure, teaching materials, and their financial implications. Further, the task force was also to make recommendations on the legal and policy reforms necessary to the implementation of the new curriculum.
The formed taskforce was to get information from the public, the specialist, and the interested groups in order to compile a report.
The new CBC curriculum is said to provide education with 21st-century skills to the learners i.e. the problem-solving skills, critical thinking, communication skills, and collaborative learning.
