Abstract:The educational function is part and parcel of social, political, and economic development. Purposes of this study, which deals with a small portion of the overall educational function - that of attitude formation and its relevance to the development process in Kenya - are: to measure student attitudes toward rural living and modernization movements, to collect occupational inclinations and choices, to assemble some indicators of the level of general agricultural information; to add to the work being done at the Curriculum Development and Research Centre of the Ministry of Education in Nairobi. The instrument used for collection of the data was a survey questionnaire and the data were collected from eighteen selected secondary schools in Kenya during September-October, 1967.
