Nandi Hills MP Bernard Kitur has asked the ministry of education to abolish the Competency Based Curriculum(CBC)
While he was distributing bursaries to needy students in Chesumei constituency, Kitur said that CBC is difficult to curry out and has become a struggle for teachers, students and parents
“Stop this thing called CBC to Grade seven and eight and revert to 8.4.4 system and have a well thought-out program that will be reasonable to parents,” he said
The MP also pointed out the hard economic times as a reason why the CBC has proven difficult to implement in the country saying Kenya is broke.
“The reality is that we are in a financial crisis as a country. The economy is not doing well,” he said
He has also asked the Education CS, Mr. Machogu to shield parents from hard economic time by abolishing the CBC adding that it has brought a lot of confusion in schools
‘The minister for education should just stop that crap. We should have a proper framework that will be reasonable in the pockets of many Kenyans who are going through difficult financial challenges.”
“we should not lose the reality that Kenyan down the pyramid are suffering,” he said
This is after, The president appointed a taskforce meant to review the CBC curriculum. The taskforce is expected to submit results in the coming months.
