Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha is expected to launch the new curriculum policy details on how the ministry will ensure proper implementation of the new curriculum that is currently rolled out in pre-primary I and II, as well as Grade 1 and 2.
In one of its boldest step, the Ministry of Education which says it is not going back despite opposition, it will unveil the document at the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) in Nairobi.
Already a sessional paper on curriculum reforms has been published and is before Parliament for discussion.
However,the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) Secretary General Wilson Sossion says the giant teachers union will not participate in the exercise terming it as flawed, lacks legitimacy and with no public participation as is required by the Constitution.
In a letter to Prof Magoha dated May 14 says it will not participate in the exercise.
We shall not be used to validate an illegal policy that is shrouded in mystery. Already the minister says the train left the station. Why engage a reverse gear by asking KNUT to grace launch of CBC policy framework? This ought to have been done before the train left@ntvkenya pic.twitter.com/NTDI1wUeja
