Out With the Old! Support Enhances Stakeholder Participation in Education Reforms

Fred Matiangi

1985 was a milestone year for the education sector in Kenya. A new education curriculum, the 8-4-4 System, which proposed eight years in primary school, four in secondary school and four in university was adopted. Kenya was on a new path to progress. Three decades later, 8-4-4 had outlived its usefulness. The system is now considered deficient and largely unresponsive to rapidly changing environments and emerging 21st century needs.
