KNUT Letter on skipping Launch of National Curriculum Policy
Pursuant to your invitation for the launch of the National Curriculum Policy at Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) scheduled for May 15th 2019, the Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) would like to state that our conscience doesn’t allow us to participate in flawed exercise which lacks legitimacy, and where there was no public participation as required by the Constitution.
KNUT shall not be used to validate an illegal Policy whose development surrounded in mystery, recalling that your very office purported to have participated in the development of Sessional Paper No.1 of 2019 on a policy framework for Reforming Education and Training for Sustainable Development in Kenya where you claimed National curriculum policy was included to guide the implementation of the competency Based Curriculum (CBC) reform process in Kenya. Please note that the Sessional Paper Is before Parliament.
Today is a different narrative, inviting the Union for the launch. This is like putting a cat before the horse. You are launching the policy when the train has already left the station.
It is fresh in your mind that it is the same exercise that led to the arbitral interdiction of over 200 teachers for boycotting to participate in the flawed CBC training exercise. KNUT, therefore will not be part of the launch of an illegal policy. The Union looks forward for your office to put in order the curriculum review process before it is too late.
HON. WILSON SOSSION) SECRETARY GENERAL K.N.U.T.
