Nelson, Robert E.; K'Aol, George O.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v35 n1 p73-88 Fall 1997
Interviews with 52 craft workers and 52 apprentices in Kenya found that apprentices had more formal education and 76.9% of craft workers acquired technical skills informally. Both groups felt self-employment skills were not well taught in the informal sector, despite the need for business planning, bookkeeping, marketing, and other skills. (SK)
