Title:Rural education in Kenya: a review article
Author:Moris, J.R.ISNI
Periodical:East African Journal of Rural Development
Geographic term:Kenya
agricultural development
Abstract:There is underway within East Africa a major re-orientation of education policies, structures, and aid towards a re-emphasis upon the needs of rural areas. The Kericho Conference (1966) papers in Education, Employment and Rural Development (East African Publishing House, Nairobi), and the Report of the Agricultural Education Commission (published by Kenya Government), highlight this trend in relation to Kenya. The former gives new information on the structure of Kenya's general education system, describing its output 'from below'. The latter ads the complementary aspect of education 'from above', which supplies the administrators and advisors needed in rural development. Together they give the data required to see education within Kenya as a total system with its own characteristics. In particular Moris evaluates the structures of training at all levels against a common criterion, their contributions to rural development.
