A teenage student kills a teacher in kenya

When the topic on morals and values is mentioned, most of the young generation finds this as a waste of time. The discipline of our children is deteriorating day by day.

When I was growing up, I grew knowing that a teacher is one of the people that should be respected no matter what. This seems like it’s no more. Students have been trying to attack the teachers anytime they try to discipline them for their bad behavior.

Some videos have been going viral showing students beating the teachers. Just recently, a student stabbed a teacher to death. He was late of attending morning classes and immediately he was told to explain why he was late, he attacked the teacher with a knife. That means the teenager had the weapon all through waiting for the right moment to attack.

Most of the parents have refrained from disciplining their children leaving the responsibility to the teachers, but with the latest incident, are teachers safe?

This has acted as a wake up call to the ministry of education which previously always supported the students. Now things have gone out of hand and it’s now sounding a warning to all students who think of harming the teachers.

Let’s keep the chat on as you leave a comment. What’s your take on this?

Competency Based Curriculum

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.
