Magoha Urges Teachers To Deliver Quality Education Regardless of The Hurdles

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has stated that the Competence-Based Curriculum (CBC) should be improved and dark areas removed.

Magoha stated that the education system, which seeks to replace the 8-4-4, is ideal for the country’s future needs and only requires some panel beating to conform to Kenyans’ aspirations.

“But even as we embark on refining this new education system we must understand and bear in mind that there is nothing which is perfect in this world since certain issues and challenges keep emerging but we must soldier on,” the CS stressed.

Speaking at the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) post-World Teachers Day Celebrations in Kirinyaga County, the CS also urged educators not to denigrate themselves by always singing the Pesa chorus, given the noble nature of their profession.

“If you reduce yourselves to mere hecklers and charlatans by always looking at the monetary aspect, then you remain at one level and become a laughing stock.

He advised teachers to fully commit to the advancement of their profession, despite the numerous obstacles in their path.

“I am urging the teaching fraternity to show the highest degree of patriotism by delivering quality education to our children whose future and that of this great nation will depend on,” he said.

He assured teachers that the gains made in the education sector during his tenure would not be eroded by the incoming administration, but would instead be enhanced for the sake of educationists and students.

The host, KNUT Secretary General Collins Oyuu, urged the Kenya Kwanza administration to ensure that the 58,000 teachers promised were hired as soon as possible.

He claimed that the country’s massive teacher shortage was jeopardizing educational quality due to the high teacher/pupil ratio.

Three legislators from across the country pledged to support the teachers’ cause at all times, owing to their (teachers’) devotion to the cause.

Gachoki Gitari (Kirinyaga Central), Njeri Maina, the local woman representative, and Kamau Murango, the area senator, who attended the event, all promised that anything teachers proposed would receive their full support in parliament.

Local Deputy Governor Wachira Githanda, who represented Governor Anne Waiguru, stated that the county will collaborate closely with the teachers to ensure their success in imparting knowledge to the children.

The celebrations drew KNUT leadership from counties east of the Rift Valley, who demonstrated their solidarity in their quest for better terms and an enabling environment in which to carry out their mandate.

The local Union leadership, led by branch Executive Secretary Patrick Kanaiyu, urged the local county administration to provide the basic infrastructure required for ECD students.

“The current infrastructure for most ECD learners is wanting while at the same time such structures are set far away at the corners of various primary schools making the toddlers feel segregated and hate being in school,” the official noted.

Tharaka Nithi was represented at the fete by its branch Executive Secretary Mutani Njoka, who assured the new administration of teachers’ unwavering commitment to delivering the quality education Kenyans crave.
