A section of leaders from the Kenya National Union of Teachers has been turned away from attending a national education conference on the new curriculum at the KICC.

According to an official from the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development the KNUT officials did not register for the event as required.

The union has been holding a hard-line stance over the rollout of the new curriculum but it remains unclear as to why they were denied access to the conference.

The conference seeks to deliberate on various issues surrounding the implementation of the curriculum.

 

One of the contestation over the implementation by Knut has been the level of public participation in its formulation and roll-out.
