Since the beginning of the era of Dr. William Ruto, Kenyans have been eager to know whether the Competence Based Curriculum will be scrapped off or not. This brings in two groups – The
ones who want it retained and the ones want it gone, with the allegation that it is costly and gives
parents headache.

In his inaugural speech, Dr. William Ruto announced his plans to establish an education reform
taskforce to streamline or rather review the implementation of CBC. This will ensure public
participation to get views about the system.

Stakeholders in the education sector took note of his remarks and shared different proposals on
what the new administration must consider to make it work.

Many stakeholders argue that scrapping off the system is not the solution since much funds have
been used by now. They say that improving it will be better and so the new government should
find ways to do so, because about 10 million learners are already in the system and it will really
affect them.
