Community schools in Kenya: Case study on community participation in funding and managing schools

The book documents the importance of the new types of community schools in Kenya, the variances among them and their experience in contributing to the goals of basic education for all in the country.

The book compares the management, financing, and qualifications of the teaching staff of these schools with those of the public/government schools. It shows that, despite numerous challenges facing community schools, they play an important role in providing alternative channels for students enrolled in non-formal education to join the formal education system. The book also draws attention to the main issues to be addressed in order to improve their contribution to the education needs of the learners.
