Kenya’s Headteachers Concerned Over New Curriculum

Kenya's new curriculum

Kenya Primary School Heads Association has raised concerns following plans by the national government to implement new education curriculum 2-6-6-3 in January 2018 without proper preparedness.

The association’s national chairman Shem Ndolo maintained that though his members support the new reforms within the education sector, but he insisted that there are more challenges facing the industry that need to be addressed by the government before the the new system being introduced.

He pointed out shortage of teachers and poor infrastructure as some of the issues that need to be tackled first.

Speaking to journalists in Mombasa during a five day primary school heads annual meeting, Ndolo said teachers need to be trained on the matter before the implementation.

The KEPSHA national chairman also called on the Teachers Service Commission to include some his members whose names were left out during the new CBA agreement due lack of documentation.

He said that a section of teachers who have not been submitting monthly contribution at his office were not included in the new salary package but urged the TSC to consider including them in the list.

More than 10,000 teachers from across the country are in Mombasa county to deliberate on issues affecting education sector in the country.
