Prospects for the development of higher education in Kenya

Weidman, John

Abstract:
In the first part of this discussion, the author describes the economic and social development context of East Africa.  He then draws on the more general context of the African continent, summarizing several major issues that have been identified by various experts as being of contemporary significance for the continued growth and development of African higher education.  This leads to a discussion of five major themes that the author believes are particularly important for Kenya, followed by some concluding suggestions for the future development of its university system.  The chapter contains tables that reflect the development status of countries in East Africa, Kenya education trends, first year undergraduate enrolment in public universities as well as recurrent expenditures per student.
