Ruto’s Radical CBC Shake Up : New Changes In Subjects , Teachers To Undergo mandatory Training.
Lawmakers have remained enraged and dissatisfied with the implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC), which began seven years ago.
They called for the formulation of a policy for funding Junior Secondary Schools (JSS) throughout the country, and the legislators were disappointed that the administration proceeded to implement the policy despite the fact that schools lacked basic infrastructure such as classrooms, workshops, and playgrounds for students.
Now, details are emerging suggesting President Ruto’s administration is preparing modifications to CBC that might give the institution a new look.
According to our source, fresh reforms suggest drastic changes that could result in the reintroduction of national exams, the abolition of national schools, extra county schools, and subcounty schools.
Another significant shift will be the reduction of subjects at all levels of school, from lower primary to senior secondary.
That instance, in junior secondary, the maximum number of subjects will be cut to nine, while in senior secondary, the number of subjects will be reduced to seven. Lower primary subjects will be lowered to seven, while upper primary subjects will be reduced to eight.
On the other hand, all instructors should be required to receive Competency Based Curriculum training in order to teach in these schools.
