The Competence-Based Curriculum, CBC is here to stay, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has affirmed.
However, the DP said the government will work to address grey areas, allaying fears that the curriculum will be faced out.
While taking oath of office on September 13, 2022, at Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi, President William Ruto said he would initiate a taskforce to look into the curriculum, as well as collecting stakeholders’ views.
On this, Gachagua encouraged parents, teachers and students to be ready to present their views to the taskforce on the review of CBC, expressing confidence that a robust discussion will lead to an improved product.
The taskforce is yet to be established.
“Our intention is not to abolish the syllabus but retain what is good and improve what is causing concern,” he said on Friday at the Kenya Music Festival in Kisumu.
He noted that the Kenya Kwanza government is keen to develop creative economy which has produced young leaders in this country.
The DP appealed to stakeholders to cooperate with the taskforce once establisged.
“In accordance with the requirements of the Constitution, Kenyans should turn up and present their views on what they want to be implemented,” he said.
