KUPPET Disagrees with Ruto’s Taskforce, Insists Primary Schools Can’t Host Junior Secondary

The Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers has reacted to a report submitted by the working party on junior secondary transition

Kuppet said the education review team had returned to the former education system.

The union secretary general Akello Misori said allowing primary schools to host junior secondary, is like taking the country back to the old curriculum.

“The working party has reverted Kenya to the 8-4-4,” Misori said.

He said primary schools can’t host junior secondary.

“Scrapping KPSEA will derail learners’ growth,” Misori said.

“Eight years under the 8-4-4 system was already too long, but now the working party has added a new class to primary school.”

Misori expressed dissatisfaction with the decision, terming it ‘inimical’ to CBC reforms. “Kuppet is deeply disappointed by the recommendations made in the interim report of the  Presidential Working Party on Education Reform. It is clear that the Working Party has decided to negate the essence of the Competency-Based Curriculum but only lacks the confidence to say as much,” he said.

He added, “The Working Party has created more problems than the one it sought to solve. Rather than pronounce itself on how the transition to JSS should be handled, it has falsely directed the Ministry of Education to ‘provide the necessary guidelines’.”

The secretary general said the move will also prove costly to the government in terms of adding the extra facilities.

“A laboratory is not merely a building. Equipping them has been a challenge even for secondary schools, which are better funded,” he said.
