The government will accommodate all emerging views to ensure proper implementation of the new curriculum in the country.
Chief Administrative Secretary and Principal Secretary State Department for University Education and Research, Ministry of Education Prof Colleta Suda says Competency Based Curriculum will only succeed if views and concerns are adequately addressed.
Suda says the dialogue forums initiated by the ministry across all the counties will give Kenyans best opportunity to give their input on how best to implement the new curriculum.
She says no Kenyan will not be listened to as the ministry strives to get all views and concerns being raised around the new curriculum set to take over from the current 8-4-4 system of education.
Speaking at Kisumu Girls High School during the launch of the dialogue on education quality for Kisumu County, Suda says all the views and concerns raised will then be looked into critically as the ministry convenes a national conference mid August.
She says the government is fully aware of the challenges that will come with the transition of the new curriculum.
Suda says the challenges concerning the implementation of the new curriculum are enormous and the government is prepared to tackle them.
Most notable challenges, Suda says include policy and financial issues.
