Education Cabinet Secretary Professor George Magoha has maintained that the Competence based curriculum is here to stay despite complaints from parents and other stakeholders.
Speaking during a stock taking meeting of CBC , Magoha alluded that some of those fighting the curriculum are politically motivated.
He asked parents to be committed to their children not only in the homework but in general life skills.
Parents had raised concern of the practical homework given to the children not considering the context of where they live.
On the cost of implementing the curriculum, the education Cabinet Secretary, said the government has enough resources to make it successful including the training of enough teachers .
Education Chief Administrative Secretary Sarah Rutto emphasized that parents have a role to play in aiding the learning process of their children and they cannot run from it.
Rutto however called on engagement between school management and parents to ensure reasonable demands in issuing of assignments.
On the issue of teacher training, 228,000 teachers in primary schools have already been trained on the CBC between 2019 and February 2021.
