President William Ruto on Friday appointed a 42-member taskforce to evaluate the country’s Education system, Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
The team will also recommend appropriate reforms to other sectors of Kenya’s education.
It will also review and recommend legislation to facilitate the amalgamation of HELB, TVET, and University Funding Boards to harmonize and merge all tertiary education funding entities.
They will also be required to consider the opinions of sector stakeholders and public members; hold as many meetings at such places and times as they deem necessary for the proper performance of their duties.
The Working Party on Education Reform appointment was made via a Kenya Gazette Notice on September 30, 2022.
Raphael Munavu will head the taskforce.
The team consists, among others, of Vice Chancellors Gitahi Kiama, Paul Wainaina, and the former private school principal Mutheu Kasanga.
“The secretaries are KNEC CEO David Njengere, Elyas Abdi, Eunice Gachoka, Jackson Too, Richard Miano, Reuben Nthamburi, and Patita Tingoi,” reads part of the notice.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
