Towards the Making of Education Policy in Kenya: Conclusions and Implications
Oduol, Truphena
International Education Journal, v7 n4 p466-479 Sep 2006
This paper uses the SACMEQ II data to carry out an analysis of classroom context factors that accounted for student scores in reading and mathematics as well as a review of methods used to derive policies in Kenya in order to emphasise the need for evidence-based research for the derivation of policies for the leadership and management of primary education in Kenya. The paper goes further to explain the advantages of the approach as well as some of the impediments. Some suggestions of measures needed to foster the approach are provided. It emphasises that this approach is a necessary ingredient for effectiveness and efficiency in education. (Contains 1 table.)
