End of 8 4 4

KNOW YOUR PROPOSED NEW EDUCATION
SYSTEM : 2-6-3-3-3
System of Education
BASIC EDUCATION (14 years)
1). Two years of pre- Primary,
2). Six years of primary (three years
lower and three
years upper primary),
3). Six years secondary (three years
junior and three
years senior),
HIGHER EDUCATION (3years)
4). Two years minimum of middle
level colleges and
5). Three years minimum university
education.
THE STRUCTURE HAS TWO CYCLES:
a) Basic Education cycle of 14 years
which is
supposed to be free and compulsory according to
the Basic Education Act ,
and
b). Higher Education cycle of 3years.
ROLL OUT PLAN
The rollout plan for the proposed curriculum
structure will be done in phases where if, for
example, it is endorsed and implementation
starts
next year , the last Kenya Certificate of Primary
Education candidates will be examined in 2018
and
the last Kenya Certificate of Secondary
Education
examinations will be in 2021.
Implementation could start in Standard One and
Standard Four next year while Standard Five, Six
and Seven are prepared for junior secondary in
2018.
The first class would sit the first junior
secondary
examination in 2020.
The structure will also focus on early
identification
and nurturing of talent in learners at the end of
the
junior secondary phase.
It allows specialisation at the end of junior
secondary ; introduce a
system of Competence Assessment Tests
(CATs) measuring knowledge, skills and
competencies,
the results of which will be cumulative and form
part of a formative assessment process, the
credits from which
will be accumulated in the summative
assessment at
the end of each phase.
This is distinct from the
current situation where students either pass or
fail and exit the system.
RECOMMENDATIONS EXPECTED
The taskforce has also recommended that the
Kenya National Examinations Council
be renamed the
Kenya Educational Assessment
Council (KEAC) and
strengthened to address all matters related to
management and administration of
assessments.
CATs by teachers are to be supported with a
national framework, or test-bank
by KEAC to be
made available online on a regular basis. This
will
make the CATs standard and de - emphasise the
many private examination papers being sold
all over the country.
The proposed curriculum could introduce a
shorter
primary cycle and a longer secondary school
cycle
and shift from a subject-based system to a
competence-based curriculum.
This will provide the opportunity to set standards
against which learners will be assessed taking
into consideration the individual interests,
abilities and talents.

May be I am biased, but the 1-7-4-2-3 system was the best. Yaani you get a usable national certificate after Std 7, Form 4, Form 6 and Uni/College. Not every body needs to have a degree, which is where we are going wrong.

There really was no justified basis of doing away with that system. Maybe some bit of panel beating but not confining it to the archives.
