Description

In most of the African, Kenya included, there is little to show in terms of development though most of the continent has been independent for over 4 decades. The Post colonial days are marked by abject poverty, many civil /ethnic strives, and an education system that is largely dysfunctional. I have tried to trace most of the social and educational problems in the independent Kenya to the colonial history. We inherited an educational system formulated during the colonial era whose objectives were to create dependency as opposed to liberation. Many years after independence, we continue to view our problems using borrowed lenses. It is my argument that the solution is to rethink about our educational problems with an aim of finding workable solutions. This means an education system that will be grounded on the local economic and cultural realities. This will be contrast to the present situation which is centered on schooling rather than learning. This has resulted on the sad situation where the educated can not fit into their social/economic environment and hence can not contribute towards the societal good.
