Boit, LC, Nelson ME.  2016.  The Hope that “No Child is Left Behind” in Education in Kenya . The Cradle of Knowledge African Journal of Educational and Social Science Research. 4(1) Abstract

Education as a right was reaffirmed during the Jomtien World Education for all forums (1990) and during the African Regional Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa on A Framework for action in Sub-Saharan African: Renaissance (1999). The Sub-Saharan countries agreed to develop successful education systems and reaffirm that education is a basic right that need investment for quality and agreed to remove all barriers to full realization of education for the African child. The new Kenya constitution as the supreme The Cradle of Knowledge African Journal of Educational and Social Science Research Volume4 No1, 2016 ISSN2304-2885 65 law of the land has, in article 43, guaranteed education for all citizens for all children (53). This paper examines the rights of education in relation to the constitution of Kenya 2010. Research explains that a meaningful education must be available, accessible, acceptable and adaptable; after all, education is to prepare and equip citizens to function effectively in their environment and to be useful members of society (UNESCO, 2010). The above concerns can only be realized by legislating articles 43, 53, 54 and 55 of the Kenyan constitution. The articles are contained in the Bill of Rights chapter and represent the rights of citizens of Kenya and especially the least able to provide for themselves and if fully legislated would ensure that “No Child is Left Behind” in the Kenyan education system.

Teyie, BG, Nelson ME.  2016.  The Impact of International Education on Private Secondary Schools in Nairobi County, Kenya. The Cradle of Knowledge African Journal of Educational and Social Science Research . 4(1) Abstract

International education is most probably the means by which we will be able to bridge the cultural and linguistic divides that exist not only within our country, but also globally. In the last decade Kenya has had an increase in the number of schools that are offering one form or another of an international education curriculum such as the British National Curriculum (BNC), the International Baccalaureate (IB), the Business Technology Examination Council (BTEC) and the American system of education. This paper explored the impact of international education in high schools in Nairobi County. This study was prompted by the need to find out whether there has been a paradigm shift. It attempted to answer the following questions: Is global citizenship still a foreign concept to Kenya? Does international education contribute/establish a greater formal equality of opportunity for all? Does international education cater for individual differences? Do students at post primary level appreciate the multicultural environment? How does it impact on the cost of education in Kenya? How do stereotypes about international education affect the implementation of these curricula? The study adopted a survey design where stratified random sampling was used to select schools from the private international secondary schools in Nairobi. Questionnaires and interviews were used to collect primary data from the respondents. A combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques was used in the analysis. The outcome of this study was expected to make recommendations that would enhance appreciation of diversity in education and encourage adoption of various positive attributes that would continue to add value to Kenyan education. It also proposed ways of minimizing the negative influences that international education may have on the Kenyan educational structures.
