Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Lamu branch Executive Secretary Ibrahim Shaibu has called for urgent provision of essential learning and teaching materials for the successful implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) in area Junior Secondary Schools (JSS).
In an exclusive interview with Education News in Lamu town, Shaibu emphasized that the availability of the materials is crucial to ensuring quality education in the schools.
He urged parents and education stakeholders to provide necessary learning facilities to ensure a seamless educational experience for the students.
Simultaneously, Shaibu revealed that there was an acute shortage of teachers in the region and attributed it to the dismal performance in national examinations in the county.
He implored the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to swiftly recruit and deploy more educators to the region.
The Executive Secretary additionally emphasized the importance of bolstering security in Basuba Ward, Lamu East sub-county.
He stressed that a safe environment is vital to enable teachers to fulfill their duties effectively in the Ward which has been plagued by insecurity in recent years.
Shaibu urged school heads to ensure timely syllabus coverage to allow ample room for thorough subject revisions and improved results in the 2023 KCPE and KCSE examinations.
