CBC Task Force Considering Different Uniform for Grades 7 and 8 learners

CBC Task Force Considering Different Uniform for Grades 7 and 8 learners.

The Presidential Working Group on Education Reforms is considering a different uniform for learners in Grades 7 and 8.

“For psychological satisfaction, the uniforms will distinguish them from the rest of learners because they will be at a higher level than their colleagues,” Kenya Primary School Heads Association (KEPSHA) told The Standard.

The Presidential Working Group on Education Reforms is considering a  a different uniform for learners in Grades 7 and 8.

This would be a departure from the 2-6-3-3-3 system set by previous President Uhuru Kenyatta.

According to the task force’s first reports, students would spend two years in pre-primary education, six years in primary school, and two years in Junior Secondary School (JSS).

The students would then spend four years in secondary school and three years in higher education.

If implemented, grade 6 graduates would advance to Standard Seven in their respective primary schools for junior high school.

At the end of the eighth grade, the students will take their final exams in preparation for their placement in senior secondary schools.

This would assist resolve the question of where to locate the junior high school.

The system would differ from the initially suggested 2-6-3-3-3, in which Grade 6 graduates were expected to enter junior high school for three years.

These proposals emerged in the midst of a dispute over the site of the junior secondary school for sixth-graders.

Primary school instructors and secondary school teachers took opposing positions on the issue, resulting in a dispute.

Representatives of primary school teachers advocated for the placement of junior secondary schools within primary schools, whilst secondary school teachers advocated for the placement of JSSs within secondary schools.

Members of the CBC working group will submit a preliminary report on the task force’s conclusions to President William Ruto for review.

In accordance with President Ruto’s vow to ensure the efficacy and affordability of the new curriculum, the Raphael Munavu-led group was entrusted with gathering opinions from relevant stakeholders on the viability of CBC.
