In a shocking move that caught parents and candidates off guard, Education CS George Magoha on Monday directed all KCSE candidates to report back to school next week. The grade four pupils will also be returning back to school a decision that has brought about a lot of questions among, students and parents.
The CS said that it was in line with president Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive and followed broad-based education stakeholders consultations. Why do Grade four pupils have to go back to school?
Grade Four pupils are set to go back to school because, under the new competency-based curriculum, it is the top class in this category just like starndard 8 is top of the 8-4-4 system in primary.
