Sossion: CBC Will Mess Kenya’s Education System
Former Knut secretary general Wilson Sossion has said the outgoing 8-4-4 system of education is superior to CBC.
Speaking during an interview with KTN on Monday, Sossion said the new education system is not going to help stem education in this country.
“CBC design as it is currently far more inferior to the 8-4-4, it is not going to help this country, it is not going to help stem education,” Sossion said.
Sossion said the new curriculum is not well planned.
He said he was hopeful that the presidential working party will make the curriculum fit for the nation.
“I want to believe that the Presidential working party in its second report in its second, third or finals report will provide a lasting solution that will see us design a curriculum that is ideal for this country, but not as a pressed curriculum that was picked elsewhere,” Sossion said.
He said the new curriculum was introduced for purposes of business expediency but not to help the country.
He said other countries in Africa like Ghana did not borrow education systems but rather, developed their own.
Currently, Grade 7 learners have started reporting back to their primary schools where they are domiciled as CBC implementation keeps on progressing.
