Yesterday in the news, I watched an interesting feature that helped me understand why the Coast region of Kenya has low transition rates of students joining form one from primary school after they sit their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE).
Is it only an issue of lack of school fees, poor performance in their KCPE, early marriage/teen pregnancy, that maybe free education is not exactly free, or is it because parents have other ‘more pressing’ priorities? This feature by Wilkister Nyabwa had some of the answers, and I share that link here which will also help you to broaden your understanding of the issue. Watch the video below.
