KIPPRA held a stakeholder workshop on 2nd September 2022 in Nairobi to obtain input towards implementing a study on promoting basic education equity and inclusion in context of Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC). The stakeholders were mainly drawn from the education sector, both public and private. The study focuses on four thematic areas namely: Basic education access and participation, equity and inclusivity, quality, relevance and financing. Speaking at the workshop, KIPPRA Executive Director Dr Rose Ngugi said to ensure success of CBC implementation, adequate support is required in terms of infrastructure, human resource, provision and development of learning materials, capacity building, advocacy and awareness creation among others.
While presenting the concept of the study, KIPPRA Principal Policy Analyst Dr Eldah Onsomu stated that education outcomes are dependent on numerous factors including health and nutrition, learning environment, quality learning content and quality processes that focus mostly on teachers and quality outcomes. Stakeholders made presentations and provided valuable inputs that would go a long way in enriching the study.
