The Kenyan School Systems' Impact on Public Higher Education Access: Examination of Growth, Access, and Challenges
Yakaboski, Tamara; Nolan, Katelyn
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v1 n1 Fall 2011
The Kenyan educational system is an example of how increasing demand, external policies, and lack of resources have hindered access into Kenya's highest level of education. While it is possible to view higher education as the problem and the solution as a means to an educated workforce and economic development, the issues stem from growth, access, and challenges at the lower levels of education, primary and secondary. In order to improve Kenya's higher education access, educators and leaders should first examine the issues hindering primary and secondary education. The trends imply that if United States educators and leaders can better understand the challenges in Kenyan education, then we can better educate the Kenyan international students with the tools and knowledge to improve the Kenyan system when they return home after graduation.
