Senators shock MAGOHA on the new CBC curriculum as they hand WILSON SOSSION a big win-See what they told the no-nonsense CS?


Sunday June 9, 2019-Senators have accused Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha of exhibiting dictatorial tendencies in managing and rolling out the competency-based curriculum (CBC).
The lawmakers said some elements of the curriculum are unrealistic and urged him to halt the process and consult.
“We need a structured national conversation on the rollout lest we regret as a country,” said Vihiga Senator George Khaniri said.
The Senators were concerned that tutors, the ministry and the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) are each speaking a different language “and this could affect the rollout of the syllabus”.
They said teachers and ministry officials are not well versed with the new curriculum.
Similar sentiments were echoed by Kisii Senator Samson Ongeri, who once served as Education minister, saying one of the pitfalls of the rollout is the delay in formulating a policy.
“It is through the policy that one is able to cut out what he or she intends to achieve. We need collective views and input from education stakeholders,” he said.
Knut Secretary-General Wilson Sossion wants implementation suspended to allow time for talks, proposing a four-pronged approach.
“Since the ongoing rollout of CBC is illegal and has failed to secure stakeholders’ participation and confidence, the entire exercise has to be suspended immediately until the union and the ministry find a solution,” the Knut boss insisted.
