Continuing Education for Youth and Adults.
Fordham, Paul; Sheffield, James
An attempt is made to analyze the weaknesses which restrict employment opportunities for primary school leavers in Kenya, and to estimate the benefits that may acrue from a coordinated program of youth and adult education preferably under the direction of the recently established Board of Adult Education. Examined are the opportunities available to youth who have never been to school or who have had some secondary school but are unable to find wage employment. The fact that there are not enough places in the formal educational system to accommodate more than a small fraction of the young people is statistically examined and the work being done by several organizations outlined. It is recommended that local committees of the Board of Adult Education should ensure that available funds and facilities be utilized as efficiently as possible and that primary school leavers be given a two-year course stressing practical skills.
