Educationists have been urged to abide by and accommodate the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) during this crucial transition period.

Mombasa county director of education Peter Magiri challenged them to stop being skeptical on the CBC and resisting it.

He defended the government’s decision in the sector saying by the look of things majority do not understand the contents of the CBC.

“There was a lot of resistance when the education system was transiting from the 7-4-2-3 (“A” level) system,” he pointed out.

Magiri insisted up to today those who had gone through the old system of education and curriculum have a perception and thinking that it is still the  best mode of education system.

He was speaking during the unveiling of Nyali Junior Secondary School’s block built to the tune of 19.8 million in Nyali constituency, Mombasa county.

The Mombasa county director of education said those who went through the previous education program had once also resisted it preferring the system before it.

Magiri pointed out the system is good and wondered why those who went through a different system are resisting it.

He pointed out normally a curriculum in learning government system is supposed to change after every ten years. 

“The theme of the curriculum is supposed to produce experts in line with the current market requirements,” he pointed out.

The Mombasa county director of education who was representing Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu urged parents to embrace CBC in totality.

Mombasa county executive committee member in charge of education Dr Mbwanrah Kame lauded the school on the idea of JSS.

He pointed out with the forthcoming Kenya Certificate of Primary Education [KCPE] and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education [KCSE] examinations they expected better performance than last year.

“The county and national governments are working closely to improve performance in education,” he pointed out.   

The school principal Toney Ongugo assured the government they are CBC compliant in line with the education sector.

The Mombasa parents club chairman Benjamin Gitonga acknowledged challenges are part and parcel of life and success is also in equal measure.
