Education CS George Magoha has insisted that the new curriculum is indeed working after making trips to the fields of action to see teachers teaching. Speaking during the launch of the CBC task force on Thursday, CS Magoha said he can’t be forced to support something that he doesn’t believe in, “I’ve been to Kwale, I’ve been to Vihiga, I’ve been to Moiben, I’ve been to many places and most of the times I go without announcing that I’m going and you find our gallant teachers teaching this in Grades one to three.”
The Education CS has previously made his stand known on the Competence Based Curriculum despite opposition from the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT). On Wednesday, Magoha said the Ministry has no time for sideshows, given that they have so much work left to do. However, he said a strong policy statement on the new curriculum, the grades, the tests and other things will be made before the year ends to provide a straight and undeterred look on the issue, with a lot of misleading formation already out there.
