SOLOMON PROFMONYENYE. "Indoctrination and Children.". In: The SundayTimes,(Nairobi:September9,1984), p. 4. Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences(PMMS); 1984. Abstract
This article reveals that the concept of education as a process of growth is a difficult one. Philosophers are, therefore, justified in being weary when pondering over its meaning, both in theory and practice. By way of conclusion, the article appreciates the complexities inherent in the growth theory of education, summarizing its major strength and weaknesses. Then it cautions educational planners and practitioners to be weary when, and if, they translate the theory into practice, so that they utilize the strengths inherent in the theory whilst paying attention to the dangers of its inherent weaknesses.

SOLOMON PROFMONYENYE. "Rites of Passage: Controversy Over the Role of Initiation Ceremonies for Cultural Identity Among Some Kenyan Societies: The Case of the Abagusii Community of South Western Kenya.". In: Bahemuka, Judith M and Joseph L. Brockington (ed.), East Africa in Transition: Images, Institutions and Identities (Nairobi, University of Nairobi Press, 2004), pp.245-265. Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences(PMMS); 2004. Abstract
Many communities mark transition from childhood to adulthood with elaborate rites of passages. For some of these communities, these rites involve circumcision for boys and clitoridectomy for girls. There is now a worldwide outcry against such practices, the loudest being that against clitoridectomy. This article attempts to show: (a) that the communities which perform such rites still continue to believe that these rites bestow upon the individual a certain specific social identity without which the individual cannot be allowed to perform certain specific roles as a member of that community, (b) why the practice of bestowing this identity is attracting controversy in modern societies and, finally, (c) how the controversy could be resolved by identifying the educational role such rites of passage are meant to perform among the communities that practise them.
