Progressive realization of the right to basic education in kenya
Kenya's education sector has achieved milestones since promulgation of the Constitution. However due to challenges of high population and unsustainable utilization of resources, Kenya is faced with many challenges that require urgent reforms to be able to sustain the ever increasing demand for education; free and compulsory education; and education for industrialization in line with the vision 2030 and Constitution 2010. This study seeks to adopt a doctrinal approach in critically examining the capability of the measures which are taken by State and its organs to progressively realize the right to basic education in Kenya within the legal, policy and institutional framework in place. The purpose of this study is to understand the challenges facing the basic education system which result from the failure of the State to put in appropriate means in realization of the right to basic education. This paper discusses current challenges in the legal, policy and institutional framework, presents government proposals for reform and recommends way forward towards achieving an enabling basic education sector that supports industrialization by the year 2030, thus making Kenya a middle income nation.
