Uhuru Defends CBC, Says It Boosts Students Potential.President Uhuru Kenyatta has voiced his support for the five-year-old Competency-Based Curriculum once more.He stated that learners who go through CBC will not be considered failures, but rather examples of success.Kenyatta’s speech was read aloud by Interior CS Fred Matiangi at the 21st Commonwealth Education Ministers Conference in Nairobi.“Implementation of CBC teaches our children the skills of critical thinking and problem solving and inculcates critical social values,” Kenyatta said.He emphasized the importance of education ministries being prepared to deal with pandemics and other emergencies.For example, during the pandemic, school closures impacted over 1.6 billion students in over 190 countries.Kenyatta stated that the closure, which lasted for two weeks, impacted approximately 500 million students in Commonwealth countries.“As a result, education gains most of the commonwealth countries have made over the last 5 years are at serious risk of being rolled back,” he said.The conference, Rethinking Education for Innovation, Work, and Sustainability, aims to rethink how to treat post-pandemic effects.In this same breath, the President challenged education ministers to implement pandemic-response measures.Kenyatta proposed four items that he believes will catapult the education sector into the post-covid era.“First, we must complete the unfinished agenda of access, quality, and equity. Second, we urgently need to recover losses,” Kenyatta said.The president advocated for quantifying the extent of learning losses as well as leveraging innovations in a specific technology.Education CS George Magoha, for his part, stated that the conference will provide an opportunity for education ministers to rethink progress toward achieving development goals.“We will explore strategies to finance education, identify priorities and formulate recommendations,” Magoha said.He stated that the recommendations will be presented at the upcoming Commonwealth heads of government meeting.The meeting will take place in Rwanda in June of this year.Fiji hosted the 20th conference.Dr. Fred Matiang’i, the CS Interior and Coordination of National Government, delivered a keynote address by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, noting that “we are at a moment in history when we have a unique opportunity to build better and more resilient education systems and to accelerate learning for all."He also stated that our educational systems must become more responsive to the changing nature of work and transform education into a more effective tool for socio-economic change.“This is a task that puts education ministers on the cusp of history. I challenge you to seize the moment and emulate other sectors,” he notedALSO READ:CS Matiangi challenged education ministers, to lead the sector into a new post-Covid re-imagined education frontier.”Delegates also heard a powerful poem from "Rich Brains,” a group of schoolchildren who delivered their own message to education ministers and stakeholders about the future of education policy.Uhuru Defends CBC, Says It Boosts Students Potential
