De La Salle Brothers are Christian educators operating in more than 80 countries, including Kenya. The purpose of this study was to find if the ideals of Lasallian education are being realized in the 21st century in Kenya and to establish whether the findings concur with the Lasallian philosophy of education. The study was conducted at St. Paul's Secondary School in Marsabit using qualitative and quantitative research approaches. The findings showed that in line with the Lasallian philosophy, the Brothers were running the school to reach the poor, teaching Christian values, and carrying out educational and pastoral care activities; furthermore, their students were high academic performers and well disciplined. However, the school admits only adherents to the Catholic faith and depends mainly on foreign donations for its operations, in regards to which some recommendations for improvement are made. A bibliography is included. (Contains 1 note and 3 tables.)
