Taskforce Begins County Public Engagement on CBC Review

The education review team has initiated two weeks of public engagement.

Monday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the 49-person team will begin its work in ten counties.

The team led by Raphael Munavu has dispersed to various regions of the nation.

On Tuesday, they will travel through the counties of Kwale, Taita Taveta, Marsabit, Nyandarua, Turkana, Kericho, Busia, Migori, Mandera, and Samburu.

There are specific locations in the ten counties where the public can find and engage team members.

A notice lists the following schools: “Kwale High, CDF Hall Mwatate, Moi Girls Marsabit, Myandarua High, Lodwar Boys, Kericho Teachers College, Lwanya Special School, Migori TC, Mandera Secondary, and St Irene Secondary.”

The team will collect public opinions in Mombasa, Makueni, Nyeri, Elgeyo Marakwet, Bungoma, Nyamira, and Homa Bay on Thursday.

The notice lists “”Coast Girls, Makueni Boys, Nyeri High, Tambach TC, St Teresa Sio, Sironga Girls and Homa Bay High.”

On the final day of the week, Friday, only three counties will be present: Isiolo, Wajir, and Laikipia.

The notice states, “The venues are Isiolo Girls, Wajir High, and CDF Hall Nanyuki.”

The public can submit their opinions at the party’s office in Nairobi, Absa Towers, Loita Street, on the 10th floor, according to a separate notice in the gazette.

The notice states that submissions should be hand-delivered to the working group offices and addressed to the chairperson.

The notice, signed by task force chairman Raphael Munavu, specifies that the submission deadline is November 18.

For electronic submissions of opinions, please email secretariat@educationreforms.go.ke.

The notice states that opinions should be submitted in the form of memoranda, letters, or research papers and should address the following topics.

Tomorrow, Kenyans will have the opportunity to voice their opinions on how the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) could be enhanced.

The task force established by President William Ruto will travel to all 47 counties to collect public and stakeholder feedback.

Prof. Raphael Munavu, chair of the appointed task force, asserts that parents play an essential role that must be recognized and that this is an excellent opportunity for them to be heard.

“Parents play a critical role in CBC but we must clearly understand the role. It must not be too expensive to parents and you have an opportunity to come on board and tell us what you propose,” noted Prof. Munavu.

According to the letter sent to all regional education directors, they are expected to invite key stakeholders in the education sector.

This includes Governors, County commissioners and other administration officers, Representatives of Primary and Secondary school heads, Trade Union and parent representatives, and religious organizations, among others.

In this regard, the task force has organized a county stakeholders’ engagement in all 47 counties to seek views from the public members to inform terms of reference.

To achieve the six-month goal, the task force has divided its 49 members into ten working teams.

On the first day of the activity, Kwale, Taita Taveta, Marsabit, Nyandarua, Turkana, Kericho Busia, and Migori Counties will be visited, and the public will be asked for input.

In the gazette notice dated 29 September 2022, the task force is also tasked with reviewing and recommending an acceptable financial mechanism for all basic education levels, including capitation and minimum essential package handouts.

In addition, the task force is tasked with examining and recommending a framework for operationalizing the National Open University of Kenya and a framework for Open Distance and E-line learning (ODEL).
