CBC Defenders

My third born son is in grade 5, set to be the 'guinea pig' according to the OP, funny thing, he is well versed in things we used to do in the old 844. He has taught his elder siblings a thing or two, and as part of the school BOM two classes are currently under construction, and an additional two classes to be built as from April this year.

Their teachers have undergone training, and in our last meeting, part of the motivation fee was to cater for their training on T-pad as offered by various universities.

I don't know about you and the Njenga fellow, but as a parent, I am okay with my kids learning under the CBC system. As I said last time, I remember back in the late 80's and early to mid 90's akina @Meria used to demean the 844 system calling it 8-4-4=0, which most likely is the system that educated you.

Change is always opposed, hata hawa the pastor's who use sociomedia as a marketing tool, used to call it the devil's tool merely a decade ago.

You guys are missing the point, nobody is against CBC,what njenga and njoya advocates for is a clear road map.CBC just like 844 is a public system that affects everyone yet no Information is being said.

For transition to junior high no clear plan has been laid out, one group says current primary school to use class 7&8 for that purpose ,others says high schools to expand. Then there is the issue of teachers.
You say teachers have undergone training yet TSC says they'll do it in April?.
That is the clarity being sought.
Personally am content with CBC but I also realize I have nephews and nieces deep in shags , if am told to print, us in towns ,we can do even late, what about those kids in shags, what locally available material are they supposed to use? Especially digital literacy which cbc prides to champion, kama nairobi internet is a challenge, aren't we leaving kids in shags behind?Isn't a public system supposed to bring everyone at par?

A good education system should be area specific to the environment, asking a child in Njabini to milk their camel or bring a mosquito specimen would be out of line, back when art and craft used to be there, we had some options for urban schools and others for rural schools.
Where has TSC said trainings will commence in April, while for a fact they started in December 2017? Unless we have two parallel TSC's.
The plans for transition to junior high are there, visit your local SCDE for the information not the social media know it all critics pages, they were working even during the holidays. I know it's cool to trash government programs, but search for alternative and official sources of information, as a parent.
I learnt the hard way to get unbiased opinion from the concerned parties, the others could be having a dog in the fight and trying to entice followers via intentional disinformation.
The only letdown to the system is the quality of materials from the allotted printers, if only KICD could ensure they scrutinized educational materials before giving them a go ahead, welcome to parenthood Kiongozi, and make sure you never miss PTA meeting you learn alot about the school and the teaching staff.
