I wish to appeal to all Kenyans of good will to reject the blackmail by the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) on the implementation of the new Competency-Based Curriculum, with the excuse of teachers not being ready to implement it.
Knut Secretary General Wilson Sossion should tell Kenyans the real reason he is rejecting this important curriculum.
The union is against the curriculum, not because it cares about the teachers who will implement it or because of resources or preparedness, but because of membership.
As soon as the curriculum is implemented in full, Knut’s members will be drawn from day care to Grade Six teachers.
All other teachers in Grades 7 and 8, and lower secondary will join the Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet).
