CBC taskforce to table a report to President Ruto on Friday

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says the presidential working party on education reforms is expected to table its preliminary report on the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) this Friday.

While monitoring the ongoing Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams at Komarock Primary School in Nairobi, the DP noted that this is in the fulfillment of the Kenya Kwanza government’s promise to have the suitability of CBC evaluated.

“The working party on educational reforms looking at issues CBC, TVET, and University education will this Friday be giving the way forward after the president receives the interim report on how to proceed with CBC and other reforms,” said Gachagua.

He further noted that the William Ruto administration will also foster the wellbeing of teachers through education reforms and better working conditions.

“The teaching profession is a calling, nobody can compensate you adequately for what you do. It is a sacrifice and that is why we are calling for respect for our teachers and that is why we agreed that the delocalization program is done away with so that teachers are able to work anywhere without being coerced to work in certain areas,” added the DP.

The working party appointed by President William Ruto visited all 47 counties, to conduct hearings and receive public submissions on the CBC curriculum.

Meanwhile, the first cohort of learners under CBC which comprises 1, 287,597 pupils began their KPSEA exams on Monday.

They were joined by 1,244, 188 candidates sitting for KCPE.
