Why teachers fear new curriculum

New Education Cabinet Secretary, Prof George Albert Omore Magoha, will soon realise that some teachers are up to no good. Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) officials want him to abandon the new Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) developed by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).

They sense danger in the no nonsense surgeon whose tenure at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) brought to the fore the level of incompetence in the teaching profession as exposed through mass failures in national examinations.

A CBC is an approach to teaching systems, assessment, grading and reporting that are based on learners demonstrating the knowledge and skills ability in the unit of learning before moving on to another unit.
