Religious Education Reform is a necessary process at this point in time. We laud President William Ruto for appointing a committee to address issues around the Competency-Based Curriculum.
We would like the committee to revisit, revise and appraise our religious education system, especially the teaching of CRE, IRE, and HRE, particularly in our basic education sector.
We propose the introduction of a new subject PHILOSOPHY AND ETHICS to replace CRE, IRE and HRE. The new subject should provide an inclusive and neutral environment for pupils to better understand and explore the views and opinions of people whose beliefs and values differ from their own.
