    In Kenya, teachers are getting a new curriculum for the first time in 32 years.

    The new curriculum focuses more on life skills, technology, and nurturing talent, and less on final exams.

    Many teachers and parents say it is a welcome change.

    But critics say the government also needs to build more schools, buy more books and employ more teachers.
