The ministry of education devised a new curriculum , Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) which will be replacing the 8-4-4 system.
The first lot to undertake CBC is in grade five. They will be moving to junior Secondary once they complete grade six.
However,the new curriculum has faced alot of criticism from a section of leaders including the former KNUT secretary general Wilson Sossion.
Today, parents in Taita Taveta have raised their concerns in the costs of implimenting the curriculum.
They say it has been a challenge to provide the required items for their children as some of the resources required are expensive. Though they appreciate CBC on how it has transformed the learners, comparing it with 8-4-4.
They have requested the national government to also support the private schools in implimenting the curriculum.
The courts is yet to give their verdict following a petition filed by President of Law society of Kenyan , Nelson Havi challenging implimentation of CBC.
