The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) officials from Nandi county Branch have urged the government through the Ministry of Education and all those concerned with the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum to follow the due process of Curriculum development.
Speaking during the County dialogue on the roll-out of the new curriculum held at Kapsabet Boys High school, KNUT Nandi officials led by the first national trustee chair Mr Bonface Tenai and the secretary Nandi south Mr Stephen Misoi, said they are not against the new curriculum, but what they want is the due process of the curriculum development to be followed.
The two said what is worrying them is that teachers have not been given time to prepare and the Ministry hasn’t published enough books to be used, thus, there is no need to rush into it. They termed the training of teachers for three days insufficient, saying the training should have started earlier in Teachers Training colleges. Another issue is the problem of infrastructure since some children are still learning under trees and their lessons are dictated by harsh weather conditions.
