Why CS Amina has Called for a Crisis Meeting
A crisis meeting was called by CS Amina Mohamed
The announcement comes days after postponing the launch of the new education system.
On Friday, the Education Ministry summoned the steering committee members on the new curriculum to discuss the future of the new education system.
Earlier on reports had indicated that CS Amina had ignored a report prepared for her by technical officers on the country’s preparedness for the rollout of the new curriculum.
Reports stated that the CS had declared before the Senate committee on education that the new system would not take off in January although the reports had indicated that the country was fully prepared for the new curriculum.
Although CS Mohamed had the document, she told the Senate that the country was not ready for the new curriculum to the dismay of officers who had accompanied her.
Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) secretary-general Wilson Sossion, while addressing the union’s 61st annual meeting, told delegates the government should start the process afresh.
It is believed Ms Mohamed while making her conclusion, used information in a preliminary report of external evaluators, which pointed at various gaps in the new curriculum.
