A change mostly comes with challenges where not everybody is ready for it. Others feel they don’t need disturbance from their comfort zones.
This has happened to the shift of 8-4-4 system to CBC. The new curriculum has faced a lot of challenges from both the parents and the teachers. No matter how much effort the government is putting to make sure the teachers are conversant with the curriculum, the parents feel that the competency Based Curriculum is a burden to them.
Some parents argue that the workload they are supposed to handle is too much bearing the mind that they are not only busy, but financing the system is also difficult. This is mostly from the parents who live a hand to mouth life.
The government doesn’t want to hear any of this and so it is geared to see that the system has succeeded no matter what. The teachers who feel the curriculum is demanding so much from them have no option rather than accepting it and move on.
To the contrary, learners are happy about it. They enjoy interacting with digital world as well as participating in practical learning areas such as Music, Agriculture, Home science, Art and Craft.
What is your take on the new curriculum? Kindly leave a comment.
