Teachers' Strike, New Curriculum - But Kenyan Schools Open

Kenyan schools are starting 2019 amid much uncertainty. The main teachers' union had threatened a strike but now says it will abide by an order from the Employment and Labour Relations Court to go to work. Teachers are reporting to their classrooms with a new curriculum, which the government insists will be rolled out despite major concerns by education stakeholders about readiness for the new system.
