Schools to receive Grade Four textbooks in November
Evaluation report“Last Friday, the Ministry of Education opened the tender and evaluation report for Grade Four textbooks. Then we will be given the list of approved books for printing before we supply to schools at the beginning of November,” Mr Njagi said at a Nairobi hotel yesterday. He was speaking during a media briefing about the Nairobi International Book Fair scheduled to run from Wednesday to Saturday. As part of the quality control of the contents of the Grade Four textbooks, Njagi said editors drawn from KPA and Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development will today meet at Jomo Kenyatta University of Science and Technology to review the books before they are printed and released to the schools. His assurance comes a week after parents and government protested against a book titled The Blood Ties, which was being used in Kenya by Standard Six pupils.
