On her part, TSC boss Nancy Macharia on Tuesday maintained that the training will sharpen the skills of teachers, and already a huge turnout has been witnessed in over 1000 zones. Sossion insists that the government has not done sufficient sensitisation among the key education stakeholders. On Wednesday last week, Sossion termed the training as “a violation of the law”. Some of the issues cited by the union against the new curriculum include: rushed implementation, lack of support in monitoring books, inadequate infrastructure due to extremely high enrolment and failure to involve the participation of private schools in the training. The KNUT boss described the new curriculum as a foreign investment that seeks to drown the Kenyan learners in the long run.
