With mixed reactions surrounding the implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC), the key players in the process have come up and expressed their support for the program claiming that as time goes by, the main purpose of implementing the programme is being realized. Kakamega County TSC Director, Mr John Nzuvu Nzioka observes that while there were difficulties in the initial stages of implementation there is a marked improvement in perception by teachers and stakeholders.

The new curriculum under the 2-6-3-3 of education was unveiled in 2017 to replace the 8-4-4 system of education but some critics have demanded that teachers need to be retrained and new infrastructure set up in schools to cater for the increasing number of students.

Mr Nzioka commended teachers in Kakamega for their diligence and posting good results in National Examinations. During the celebrations to mark Teachers Day, Head Teacher, St Peters Mumias Boys Boarding Primary School, Sister Ann M. Onyacha and Butere Girls Principal Jenipher D. Atieno were feted for their exemplary performance.

He said that Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), has also been very supportive, adding that this goodwill has gone a long way in ensuring government educational programmes succeed.
