Abstract:Preliminary discussion of the role of technology in development in Kenya. Education and politics in colonial Kenya are discussed as an introduction to the analysis of available data on technological education. Central thesis is that all colonial educational systems are for serving technarchic societies i.e. societies which do not manipulate technology for their social ends, and that post-colonial educational systems continued to serve technarchic societies because of societal value lag. The author concludes with the suggestion that technical education should be rapidly expanded and that the technological education system should be revised. Notes, tables.
