- More than half (52%) of Kenyans believe that the new competency-based curriculum or CBC system will improve education in the country “somewhat” or “a lot,” in addition to 13% who think it will help “a little bit.” Only one in four (26%) say the CBC system will do nothing to improve education (Figure 1).
- Education ranks sixth among the most important problems that Kenyans want their government to address, down from fourth place in 2019 (Figure 2).
- Seven in 10 Kenyans (69%) say that education services have improved over the past five years (Figure 3).
- Among the 50% of Kenyans who say they had contact with a public school during the year preceding the survey, almost three-fourths (73%) say it was “difficult” or “very difficult” to obtain the services they needed (Figure 4).
Two-thirds of Kenyans believe that the new competency-based curriculum or CBC system will improve education in the country at least “a little bit,” a new Afrobarometer survey shows.
A large majority of citizens also say that the country’s education services have improved in the past five years.
But the latest survey findings also show a massive rise in the number of citizens who say they find it difficult to obtain services they need from teachers or school officials.
