Education Task-Force to Table CBC Report at State House
President William Ruto is this morning expected to receive the final taskforce report that if adopted will completely transform the country’s education system.
Prof Raphael Munavu led the Working Party on Education Reforms (WPER) that was tasked with re-evaluating the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) and is set to present its final report to the head of state this morning at the State House.
“The presentation of our report has been planned for tomorrow at the House. We will share updates and timings with everyone shortly,” a short text message sent by Prof Munavu to the 42 members of the task force stated.
Among the far-reaching proposals made by the team, is the trimming of clipping of the giant Teachers Service Commission (TSC) with the Ministry of Education being empowered to handle quality and assurance standards as the former is left to deal with human resource issues.
In the far-reaching policy proposals, the ministry will have a say in the transfer and promotion of teachers, a role that is at the core of the TSC mandate.
The proposal is said to have been informed by the fact that while the Ministry releases billions of shillings to schools, it has no influence over the fund managers who report directly to TSC.
