Dear Ruto, please stop CBC roll out

Education CS George Magoha

Congratulations on your win Dr William Samoei Ruto.

This is an opinion piece for all Kenyan parents suffering from a slave-making education.

Broadly, there was nothing wrong with 8-4-4, the bone of contention heavily weighing on that system was its examination ways.

The examination had become the only thing that most schools used archaic and sometimes unscrupulous ways to achieve the top marks.

It was a thing that the end justified the means. Which was wrong.

The economy is dilapidated.

Parents are overburdened by the needs of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

“The conversation we want to have is, we are now five years into CBC. UNESCO guidelines give us the latitude that every five years we have to review the education curriculum and this is the moment we have had concerns from parents, teachers, various stakeholders…This discussion is going to be largely about how do we achieve universal access; how do we make sure our education is relevant so that we can use it to tackle the challenges of our time, how do we make our education much more affordable for the majority and how do we get quality education where we don’t have half-baked people,” President William Ruto on CBC on 23rd June 2022

It needs to stop.

You have been elected on the platform of bottom up. On the premise that anyone can come from any background and achieve much.

CBC, as per analysts, is not a curriculum that endows anyone with this. It does the opposite.

We need 8-4-4 back but without that cut-throat unnecessary examination that is KCPE and KCSE. There should be a new way to gauge who rolls on to the next stage.

Below, are some articles we wrote analysing why CBC is bad.

  1. We should stop making slaves, we need thinkers.
  2. Burden to parents
  3. ‘CBC is not the education that the children of Kenya deserve’, Dr. Wandia Njoya
