Messy CBC Double Intake Predicted

Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has predicted messy learners double intake next year unless the presidential task force intervenes.

National Vice Chairman, Stanely Mutai claims transition from 30,000 primary schools to 10,000  junior secondary schools countrywide in 2023, will occasion a crisis.

Speaking at Kisii primary, in Kisii county, during the union’s by-election to replace an official who had resigned, Mutai petitioned the task force to come up with recommendations that could mitigate the situation.

Mutai observed that grade 6 to 9 children were too young to learn in far-flung boarding schools and should instead operate from schools close to their homes.

The vice chairman recommended that junior secondary schools be domiciled in primary schools to learn positive societal values from the parents and community.

Mutai further suggested the CBC be changed to ‘intermediate’ or ‘middle’ schools to suit the level of education they will offer.

The new curriculum has since attracted complaints from stakeholders owing to enormous demands in its implementation, prompting president William Ruto to appoint a task force for its review.

Meanwhile, in the by-election, Killion Akunga garnered 323 votes against his rival Felix Nyamira who got 190, and bonuke Karori 91 votes.
