Teachers are teaching Outcome Based Curriculum, not CBC – Sossion
“CBC is a failure because teachers and parents are complaining about it and nobody knows anything about it because teachers are teaching outcome-based curriculum. CBC is about business, it’s going to kill public schools & promote private schools.” Wilson Sossion said.
He blamed the government for failing to deliver its manifesto to Kenyans including the laptop projects for learners. The laptops which were replaced by tablets, sossion claims they are not even functional.
The former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) SG says teachers were not trained to use the gadgets despite the government spending about 17 billion shillings to purchase them.
He claims the project was hijacked by cartels who enjoy protection from the government.
“This idea of laptops was a strange thing and we would have preferred that it is done differently. It became a miserable loss, it is a zero score for Jubilee.” He said.
Sossion added that nobody can even interpret the Competency-Based Curriculum as Kenyans do not understand the curriculum.
“A good curriculum is one that inspires, that teachers understand,” Sossion said adding that there is no connection even within the CBC and the universities.
Sossion was speaking during an interview on Citizen TV on Thursday morning. He noted that universities in Kenya are collapsing due to poor funding and the poor policies that were implemented.

He called on the government to reorganize the education sector. Unhappy Kenyan parents have been taking to social media to highlight the difficulties they face while assisting their children with their homework.
The proponents of CBC point to the success of this education system in countries such as Australia and Finland.
