Education is a vital tool in the development process of any country. Economists have argued that educational development would lead to accelerated economic growth, more wealth and income distribution, greater equality of opportunity, availability of skilled human power, better health outcomes, low crime rates, national unity and political stability. Higher levels of education reduce food insecurity and hence reduce vulnerability of households.
The supply of basic social services including education services, or lack thereof, directly impacts on the quality of life for all. The Government of Kenya in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, various policy instruments and strategy documents emphasise on the provision of social services to all its citizens. Under the Fourth Schedule of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, education is a national function apart from the management of Pre-Primary Education, Village Polytechnics, Home Craft Centres and Child Care facilities which has been allocated to County Governments.
