The country is changing the curriculum. The outgoing Education CS Professor George Magoha has been steadfast in reminding the incoming Government not to abolish the CBC curriculum.
Since it began, the parents have been crying foul of how expensive the curriculum is. Many parents have been forced to cough out good sums of money to facilitate the projects of the learners.
Next year, the government expects to have a double transition of learners to secondary schools. The current grade six learners will join grade seven for Junior secondary School education. The government has been in a rush to build classrooms which up to now are still not enough.
The government has been trying to pay most of the levies to the students through the Capitation Funds. This has seen many learners go to schools with ease.
However, it is worrying news for the parents as reports emerged that the CBC and Capitation fees is a big headache for the government. Can the burden be shifted back to the parents?
