Implement new curriculum, stakeholders told

Kisii county education board has urged stakeholders in the sector to support the new curriculum  from the on set as schools reopened.

Board chairman,Dr. Henry Onderi said the multi-prong approach towards implementation of  the competence based curriculum ( CBC) will make it succeed.

Speaking to the media in Kisii,Onderi observed the  national government and education ministry had already  pronounced themselves on the 2 -6 -6 -3  curriculum  and that any sideshows will not help.

The chairman warned that delivery  of the current and new curriculum can be compromised by delaying commencement of learning programmes.

He faulted some  learners  and teachers for reporting late in schools and said it might lead to poor academic and national examinations  performance as witnessed in last year’s results.

According to Onderi  parents cannot afford to abdicate their  responsibilities  to teachers by failing to visit schools  over  absenteeism of their children.

The chairman appealed  to stakeholders to embrace the welfare of the child and  work together in  delivering their mandate.
