President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) where a report on CBC will be launched.

The report was done by A Task Force on enhancing access, relevance, transition, equity, and quality for effective reforms implementation.

On Tuesday, February 9 2021, the task force report on CBC recommended the entrenchment of value Education in the CBC curriculum.

The report is expected to sort out how the pioneer class of the new curriculum will proceed to secondary school.

The new system that focuses on equipping learners with skills was rolled out for Grade Four learners last year with the transition from primary to junior secondary school scheduled for 2023.

It was also to identify schools to host pathways and tracks in senior secondary pathways while considering equity and cost-effectiveness.

In addition, the Task Force was also asked to make recommendations on infrastructure, learning and teaching resources and their financial implications.

The new system puts emphasis on competencies and talents earners.
