Teachers' Union Oppose Government's Rush To Implement New Curriculum


Omboko Milemba  KUPPET Emuhaya MP ANC
Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers cannot understand why the government is so eager to put 8-4-4 system on its death bed and kill it before engaging stakeholders on how the new system will be implemented.
The government has made clear its intentions to rid this country of the 8-4-4 system and replace it with 2-6-3-3 which it has said numerous times before will enhance the quality of education in the country.
Union leaders led by Akello Misori and Omboko Milemba have termed the new system a foreign one that will kill learners' creativity. Misori also said that the new foreign syllabus will not deal with issues at hand that affect learners.
Akello Misori was part of a 36 member team that was put in place by cabinet secretary Fred Matiang'i to review the current system. He is now accusing the government of imposing the new syllabus on schools.

While declaring KUPPET's intention to oppose the implementation of the new curriculum, Omboko Milemba said he will use his current position as Emuhaya MP to push for reforms in the education sector.
The government will over the next one year implement the new system in 470 schools across the country as it rolls it out countrywide over a period of time.
