What government is currently doing to expand the education sector in Kenya

The government of Kenya recognizes education as the primary means of sustainable economic development, social mobility, national cohesion, and social development. This has led to the implementation of programs that rapidly expanded the education sector.

Challenges and gaps in the education sector include lack of comprehensive strategies for teacher development and provision of holistic early childhood care and education. Ineffective and uncoordinated monitoring and evaluation of education outcomes and programs has exacerbated weaknesses.

The National Education Sector Plan 2013-2018 (NESP) aims to meet four goals:

    1. An education administration structure that:
      • provides equitable access to education for all children,
      • enables central, county, and local authorities and schools access to information,
      • has agencies and processes in place to provide quality assurance of learning.
    2. A schooling system delivering the compulsory core curriculum in a safe environment in order to meet each individual’s academic, professional, and technical needs and national, social and economic goals.
  1. An integrated curriculum framework for basic education that:
    • enables creativity, practicability, and productivity
    • is based on pedagogies that stimulate intellectual and practical qualities of all learners,
    • supports a culture of democracy, tolerance, social, and environmental awareness.
  2. A structure of tertiary education that fosters academic quality, rigor, and research necessary for knowledge based society and expands the learning pathways for young people.

The NESP outlines six priority areas for grouping programs and activities to meet these goals. These priority areas are: education sector governance and accountability, access to free and compulsory basic education, education quality, equity and inclusion, relevance, and social competencies and values.
