CBC learning materials available, says Magoha

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha says the Ministry of Education has put in place strategies to ensure that learning materials for the Competency Based Curriculum are available in schools.

Magoha assurance comes following reports that poor infrastructure and lack of teacher training could derail the implementation of the competency-based curriculum.

The Cabinet Secretary was meeting education stakeholders in Nairobi as the ministry moves to institute dialogue on the implementation of the new curriculum.

The CS lashed out at opponents of the Competency Based Curriculum saying that the feedback from the pilot program has been encouraging.

He maintained that elaborate plans including funding had been put in place to facilitate the process.

He further raised concerns over the increasing rates of teenage pregnancies and early marriages terming the vices as a hindrance to career growth of young girls.

The CS challenged the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development to consider the principles of religion and culture in coming up with content that can be used for sex education in schools to end the controversy over this subject.

Magoha also announced that preparations for the 2019 national examinations are complete and that any form of irregularity will not be tolerated.

The county dialogues which provide stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss how best to implement the CBC will culminate in a National Education Conference on Curriculum Reforms to be held on 16th August 2019.
