Several countries in Africa are reforming the curriculum in schools. According to www.Standardmedia.co.ke, Former President of Kenya, Daniel Moi, recently urged reformers to take their time. He believes the issues with the current education system should be looked at with a critical eye instead of being completely scrapped. The article mentions that Moi fears that a quick adoption of new policies could create more issues and he believes that Kenya shouldn’t base its education system solely on one education model.” Moi also believes that education is essential to Kenya’s progress, but the institutions of learning need to be managed properly.
