New education curriculum is a real game changer, says Migori leaders

A section of Migori County leaders have lauded the new education curriculum and now want the stakeholders to work on its implementation.

Kuria East Member of Parliament Marwa Kitayama while addressing education stakeholders at Kegonga expressed confidence that learners will be able to identify and work on their area of study and talents at an early stage as opposed to the 8.4.4 system.

The legislator welcomed the move by the education stakeholders and wants the new system of education (2-6-6-3) to be well implemented for the benefit of learners and the society at large.

Kitayama said the new system gives students chance to identify their capability at an early stage which allows them to do their best in their lives in future.

Similar sentiments were echoed by the Migori County Pentecostal Evangelist Fellowship of Africa Bishop John Okinda who said the 2-6-6-3 system will improve the education standards and make students more competitive in the job market.

He praised the new system that focuses on the ability to produce goods and services with emphasis on talents mostly sports and crafts.

Bishop Okinda said the system will also encourage self-employment among learners rather than be perpetual job seekers.
