Dr Wandia Njoya explores developments in Kenya’s education sector since independence. She explains that the initial 7-6-3 system was designed to recreate a British style elite; 8-4-4 created more rounded Kenyans who were better critical thinkers; now we head into the uncertainties of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC), that seems to be a throwback to the original 7-6-3 system. Dr Njoya also explores the implications of these developments for Kenyan youth.
