CBC: Junior secondary placement guidelines to be out in 3 weeks

The government is set to release guidelines on the placement of Grade Six in Junior Secondary school (JSS) system.

According to Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha, the modalities will be announced in three weeks time.

The placement of the 1.24 million learners who are expected to transition to secondary schools next year has been shrouded in confusion.

According to the Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC), the pupils who will be sitting Kenya Primary School Education Assessment in November are set to transition to secondary next year.

The CS who spoke Tuesday Kenya Private Schools Association (KPSA) conference in Mombasa assured of the ministry’s preparedness disclosing the placement exercise is almost complete.

“I know you are worried about the engagement process about how the children will be placed It’s a work in progress, I will come out and tell you. Within the next three weeks, we will be very clear and we will go public with it”.

Magoha added that the selection criteria will also be based on affirmative action.

He further directed Quality Assurance and Standards officials to reinspect all private schools with a view to determining their preparedness.

The Competency-Based Curriculum is one of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legacy projects as he exits office next month after serving two terms.

It is still unclear whether the incoming government will continue with the new curriculum.

The government embarked on the construction of 10,000 classrooms with a tentative deadline for the project being July 2022.
