Students, Teachers, and Opportunity Perceptions in Kenya, 1961-1968. Volume I. Final Report.
Anderson, C. Arnold; And Others
This report dealing with the educational situation in Kenyan schools immediately preceding independence, is a two-part study which focuses on the characteristics of a 196a Form-4 class and several groups of teachers. Both sections investigate the selectivity in recruitment of the groups studied, including secondary school attendance, teaching roles, perspectives of occupational opportunities, and job preferences. Discussion of Form-4 pupils in 1961 focuses primarily on personal orientation to future education, jobs, and career aspects. This group of male African students is ultimately traced to their jobs and occupational status as of 1968. The aim of Part 2 is to help understand some of the little-recognized, central features of the early stages in the development of a nation's teaching force. Analysis includes examination of teachers' attitudes toward, and perception of, their situation and job alternatives, and the relationships of those attitudes and perceptions to reading patterns and social origins. Frequent use of statistical tables is made throughout the study. For Volume 2 of the report see FL 001 835. (Author/RL)
