Government on course to deliver CBC classrooms, Magoha

The government was on course to deliver the 10,000 Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms that were under construction by the end of August, Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. George Magoha has said.

The project, he said, was 98 per cent complete adding that the remaining classes are expected to be completed and handed over by the end of next week.

The second phase of the project, which targets to construct an additional 3,500 classrooms, he said, will be launched next week to ensure that a total of 10,000 classrooms are delivered by the end of August.

Private schools, he added, have also constructed 1,200 classrooms with plans in place to have at least 5,000 classrooms for Junior Secondary at the institutions by the end of July.

Speaking in Kisumu on Saturday where he inspected the progress at three private schools, Magoha lauded the efforts made by the institutions saying it will go a long way in ensuring smooth roll out of Junior Secondary School.

Magoha urged the private schools to consider constructing standalone Junior Secondary Schools to ease pressure on government schools.

The government, he said, will hasten the process of registering the schools to ensure they are ready to roll out junior secondary.

“We are asking them to continue with the good work. We are ready and willing to work with them,” he said.

The Competence Based Curriculum (CBC), he said, was here to stay adding that the government has spent a lot of resources to ensure its success.

“Modalities on how grade 6 pupils will transit to junior secondary are being worked on. Before we leave office we shall ensure that it is done,” he said.

He cautioned politicians against spreading propaganda on CBC urging the media not to fall into the trap of spreading falsehoods about the programme.

“Those opposed to this programme must give us a credible reason. Let us stop confusing our children and parents,” he said.
