What You Need to Know About Kenya’s New Education Curriculum

Beginning this month, learners across Kenya’s 28,000 primary schools are witnessing the rollout of a new education system after a successful pilot that ran from May 2017.

While the new system, complete with a new curriculum, is expected to be a triumph over the 8-4-4’s often-maligned “grades-first” approach, not many understand what the 2-6-3-3 system and the sweeping changes taking place in the education sector are all about. Africa Uncensored‘s Joy Kirigia sets out to change that in this and upcoming features.
