The Business Daily columnist was appointed to lead a task-force mandated to review the contents of textbooks set to be used in the new education curriculum.

Eldon and his team will assess the contents of the books and deliver a comprehensive report in the next 30 days.

CS Amina outlined that the task-force was formed after members of the public raised issues with some of the content in the books.

Controversial Textbooks

Some of the books enlisted in the Orange Book were in March 2018 rejected by teachers after they found them to contain numerous errors in labeling and terms used among other discrepancies.

“Our worry is the impact the errors will have on learners. Using these books may cause damage to learners either through omission of some content or overload.

"I have already received many complaints from teachers,” said Kenya Secondary School Heads Association (Kessha) chairman, Kahi Indimuli.

KICD CEO Julius Jwan admitted that they had not assessed the books thoroughly assessed the books before approving them to be used in teaching.

"We did not evaluate the books afresh. We only picked the cheapest books based on revised prices," he stated.
