CBC Implementation wasn’t more accommodating in stakeholder participation and should be put on hold, Speaker Muturi has said.

Justin Muturi, the Speaker of the National Assembly, is the latest politician in the country to criticize the Competency-Based Curriculum’s implementation.

The speaker added that the government failed to engage Kenyans about the issue during a TwitterSpace held by Ahmed Mohamed ((ASMALi) on Thursday.

“Even though the ministry keeps saying that there was sufficient public participation, there is a need for further consultation. Both teachers and parents are complaining that they are not sufficiently knowledgeable in it,” Muturi said.

He added: “That should be a reason enough for the curriculum to be put on hold”.

Muturi proposed that the government should also engage with the National Treasury to ensure what is needed for CBC Implementation is availed.

The government is rolling out the 2-6-6-3 curriculum to Grade 6 after publishers were asked to submit learning materials for evaluation.

The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development will assess and approve teaching and learning materials for use in schools.

Next year, the CBC will be in Grade 6.

As a result, in 2023, pioneer cohorts will graduate from primary school and enter junior secondary school under the new system.

KICD CEO Charles Ong’ondo announced that the institution has asked publishers to submit course materials for vetting for the Grade 5 rollout, which begins on April 6.
