KNUT wants CBC allocated more funds to succeed

The Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) is being pushed for extra financing by the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT), which claims that it requires more money than the previous 8-4-4 system.

Elgeiyo/Marakwet’s Executive Secretary, Musa Busienei, highlighted the cost of the CBC and the need for more funding to guarantee its success. During a news conference, he emphasized that the CBC, as a practical organization, needs certain tools in order to function properly.

Busienei emphasized how crucial it is to provide funds on time, pointing out that delays have a detrimental effect on educational activities. He expressed worry over the nation’s public schools’ financial struggles, considering them to be a serious threat to the education industry.

KNUT is advocating for a rise in capitation funding in an attempt to alleviate this problem. Busienei suggested raising the per-pupil funding in primary schools from Ksh1,500 to Ksh5,000 and in junior secondary schools (JSS) from Ksh15,000 to Ksh22,000. He thinks that this change will improve the nation’s educational system as a whole in addition to relieving the financial burden on schools.

Similarly, the proposed increase from Ksh15,000 to Ksh22,000 for JSS aims to cater to the unique needs of these institutions. Junior Secondary Schools play a crucial role in preparing students for higher education and equipping them with essential skills for their future. However, the current capitation funds fall short in supporting the necessary resources, including laboratories, specialized equipment, and supplementary materials required for comprehensive education. By augmenting the funds for JSS, KNUT believes that these schools will be better equipped to deliver quality education and foster holistic development among students.

Overall, KNUT firmly believes that the adjustment in capitation funds will not only address the financial challenges faced by schools but also contribute to the improvement of the overall quality of education in the country. By providing schools with adequate resources, this proposal aims to create an environment conducive to effective teaching and learning, ensuring that every student receives a well-rounded education that prepares them for a brighter future.
