• Wesonga said more consultation should have been done regarding implementation of JSS.
• "Even our deans in the university, I have never seen them being called to give their views on CBC," Wesonga said.
Education experts should be involved when critical decisions on the sector are made, UASU secretary general Constantine Wesonga has said.
Addressing the media on Tuesday at the Human Rights Commission offices, Wesonga said that a dysfunctional education system will lead to the destruction of the nation.
"As a country can we sit and reason together because destroying a country is very easy, just destroy the education system," Wesonga said.
The Universities Academic Staff Union said they will not allow the education in the country to be compromised.
Wesonga questioned the preparedness for the transition to Grade 7 under the CBC curriculum.
He said there are a few days remaining to school reopening, yet teachers, parents and learners are confused about joining junior secondary school.
"I am an educationist and I don't understand this CBC yet I studied up to PhD level," Wesonga said.
Wesonga said more consultation should have been done regarding the implementation of junior secondary.
"Even our deans in the universities have never been called to give their views on CBC," Wesonga said.
Wesonga said if the country is not ready to implement CBC, then the 8-4-4 curriculum should be reintroduced.
" What was wrong with 8-4-4. If CBC is not ready, why can't we continue with it because we understand it. We have a system in place if we are not ready for CBC, " Wesonga said.
He urged the Ministry of Education to ensure effective and widespread consultation with relevant players in the education sector and public participation when making decisions.
"Can we sit down and reason, we don't lack experts in education," he said.
